The Bold Arms


Originally known as the Griffin, the Bold Arms in Churchtown has grown over the years. Back in Victorian times the stables at the rear of the pub were used to house the horses that pulled the Southport Horse Trams.

This is the kind of place I'd want to hang around for a day, Les. It looks and feels so...clean!
Les Auld: Clean and a few interesting shops but I don't think there is enough for a full day unless you are partial to tea.Thanks for the comment.
