      Southport

      Hi lads and lasses, could anyone give us an honest opinion as to whether they consider Southport to be a good place to live (positives/negatives etc). Any rough areas to avoid? Is there much trouble on nights out? Is it quite laid back during the day. Thanks in advance (looking for a house).

      It's alright mate.  Not the liveliest of places but with some beautiful property around and not sure there are any "rough" areas at all.

      I seem to remember so problems areas with Drugs recently. Southport used to be very much an OAP paradise very quiet. Some really expensive "footballers" areas but it is a fantastically diverse area Ormskirk through to Southport Parbold ,Tarleton take your pick .

      It won't be cheap mate but depends what you're looking for.  It's an expensive area and the further out you go the more expensive it becomes.

      You can get a 2 bed terrace for £150k ish but then could pay £500k for a 3 bed flat 😁

      Transport isn't the best if you're planning on using buses or trains cos it's kind of the end of the line 😂

      How come you're asking mate you thinking of moving there?

      Thinking of moving "anywhere" Debs, not fussed as long it's a nice house and nice area. Might have found "the" house near Ramsbottom (Ramsbottom looks nice) gonna keep fingers crossed it doesn't go till I can look at it!
