The Atkinson is Southport’s beautiful new home for music, theatre, art, poetry, literature and history, right in the middle of Lord Street in Southport and just 3 minutes’ walk from Southport train station.

 Significant investment has been made in refurbishing the stunning 19th century buildings, to create a really welcoming multi art-form venue with a strong contemporary feel.

It offers an exciting and varied destination for families, cultural tourists and arts enthusiasts alike, with a full day and night time offer. While the day away visiting the new shop, that sells gifts and contemporary crafts from regional makers and then relax in the Bakery, choosing from a selection of artisan bread sandwiches, cakes and sharing platters. Wonder through the major exhibitions and see performances from some of the UK’s foremost musicians, actors, performers and companies, films, family activities and much more.

In October 2014 our new Egyptology Gallery gallery opened, the new home of the Goodison Egyptology Collection, which has not been seen for over 40 years. Families can  find out about life and how it really was for the Egyptians and the difference between being rich and poor at that time.

In February 2015  the Atkinson redevelopment was completed, with the opening of our museum Between Land and Sea – 10,000 Years of Sefton’s Coast. It will tell the story of Sefton and its dramatic maritime history as well as how it links to the rest of the world and has grown into one of the most popular tourist destinations .
