Herbert Silcock's Carousel in Southport. Photo by Andrew Brown Media

Love is in the air at one of Southport’s most beautiful landmarks this February!

Couples across the North West are invited to celebrate this year’s Valentine’s Day (Monday, 14th February) with a fun ride on Herbert Silcock’s Carousel, at the entrance to Southport Pier.

Silcock’s is offering couples a Free Ride on Valentines Day to spark a little romance  – and make their world spin round.

Couples are welcome to make a small donation to Southport charity Queenscourt Hospice.

Silcock’s Operations Manager Serena Silcock-Prince said: “We are reopening our Carousel in time for February half term, and thought providing a special offer for couples in the region would be a lovely way to help them celebrate Valentine’s Day.

“Southport is a beautiful town with lots to offer couples, with excellent attractions like our Carousel and Silcock’s Funland, and also lots of great restaurants, hotels, shops and scenic places for a romantic day out such as the Promenade, Lord Street or Southport Pier.

We have been working hard over winter keeping the Carousel in tip top condition.

“It is a really beautiful attraction.”

Herbert Silcock’s 121-year-old Carousel was built in 1901 in the reign of Queen Victoria.

After careful maintenance work over winter, the popular attraction reopened on Saturday (12th February), ahead of February half term and Valentine’s Day.

The Gallopers ride, on Southport Pier Forecourt, weighs 18 tons, is 42ft in diameter and 18ft tall.

It features two beautifully-painted carriages and 30 horses, each named after members of the Silcock family or family friends.

The horses on the inside of the ride are original Anderson carvings and date to when the ride was built at the turn of the century. 

Tickets for all riders are £2 each. Small children must be accompanied by an adult.
