Project Description

The Kings Gardens Shelters are a reflection of the late Victorian and early Edwardian intentions to establish Southport as a high end destination of choice for a particular class of visitor.

Historical records show that a total of 10 rectangular cast iron, timber and glass shelters were installed around the seafront and King’s Gardens area between 1887 and 1912 of which 9 remain and have been granted Grade II status.
