Art & Culture at The Atkinson

The real jewel of Southport has to be The Atkinson. It’s a museum, art gallery, library and theatre. If you’re familiar with places like Bury Met, it’s a similar kind of vibe. The Atkinson also a lovely café on the ground floor called A Great Little Place, a great place for a coffee and a delicious slice of cake.
