Lord Street is a mile-long, tree-lined boulevard in Southport. The stylish street is renowned for its high quality shops, hotels, restaurants and bars.
Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte lived in Southport between 1846 and 1848. During his subsequent reign as President of France much of Paris was redesigned and its medieval streets replaced with wide boulevards. It is commonly believed that Lord Street served as his inspiration.
Wayfarers Arcade is one of several shopping arcades on Lord Street and is home to around 30 designer and specialist stores.
Shops on Lord Street itself include Argos, Edinburgh Woollen Mill, Co-operative Travel, Early Learning Centre, Thomas Cook, Ernest Jones, H Samuel, Next, Broadbents & Boothroyds, Waterstone’s, Russell & Bromley, Past Times, Hotter Shoes, Jessops, Jaeger, Pavers Shoes, Man to Man, Debenhams, and Molloy’s.
