New Brighton

So what's going on at New Brighton?

Well... since it underwent a £60 million redevelopment scheme, there’s a load of stuff to do there!

You can go bowling or play Laser Quest at Riverside Bowling

Or watch a film at the Light Cinema - relax in comfy seats and watch in 3D! And while you're at the new Marine Point complex, there are restaurants, coffee shops and even an ice cream parlour.

You could visit the New Palace Amusement Arcade - which includes a small fairground.

Or maybe watch a show at the Floral Pavilion - music, theatre and more!

And there's Championship Miniature Golf at Kings Parade, just a short walk from Marine Point.

Along the coast, there is Fort Perch Rock, which is a coast battery defence, open throughout the year. It features an ‘Aviation and Archaeology Museum,’ as well as the 'Luftwaffe over Merseyside' permanent exhibition.

The lovely Vale Park is further along the promenade.
