Perfect for adults and kids alike. A great airshow over the sands and sea at Southport. Best to arrive early because of traffic

Air-shows are fantastic, whether you get to see a Vulcan swooping or the famed Red-Devils - all the better on Southport seafront as the town comes alive! Whilst there's plenty of places to park, it's worth getting there handy though as traffic can be bad...More

Situated on the large flat Southport Beach area, near to sea-front attractions. Some exciting aircraft visit here annually, including the Red Arrows, plus military parachute display teams are frequent visitors. Good ground displays. Reasonably priced and good parking.

Great family day. Sefton council charges are a bit too steep though . High light of the day is the red arrows.
