We are thinking of going to the Pleasureland British Musical Fireworks Championships in September.

Can anyone tell us what hotel would be the nearest to King Gardens where it is taking place? How near is King Gardens to the centre of Southport?

How far is it from Liverpool airport and how do we get there from Liverpool?

Is this a good event to go to? Hope someone can help us.

Great event

Great views from many places such as the bridge from near Kings Gardens

or if you want to have a meal and make a night of it then head for Ocean Plaza

plenty of Restaurants on Ocean Plaza such as -Frankie & Benny, Nando's and Chiquito's

there is a Premier/Travellodge? on Ocean Plaza but other Hotels nearby are the Scarisbrick, Prince of Wales the Royal Clifton and umpteen B&Bs

Further details from

British Musical Fireworks Championships

The Promenade

The musical fireworks display is well worth visiting OK its not Barcelona but I think thats a bit of an unfair comparison. There are loads of Guest houses, B&Bs whatever in Bath Street which is in the centre of town and nothing is more than a few minutes walk away including a viewing spot for the fireworks. I found loads of places on this website www.southporthotels.org try it if you wish. Happy Holidays
