According to local legend, Southport got its name when hotelier William Sutton—affectionately known as The Mad Duke—invited his friend Dr Miles Barton to stay at the new bathing house he'd built. Barton stood to toast the town (known at the time as South Hawes) and got as far as "To South—" before his attention wandered to the contents of his glass and he added, "Port?". Toast to a great Escape with a stay at the Prince of Wales hotel.

Since then, the town has enjoyed a reputation as a place for a little R and R, and you don't have to wait for a public speaking invite to experience it for yourself with a break for two-night stay for two people at £99 (up to £205.95 in value).

Satisfy your culinary cravings with dinner each evening in the hotel's delightful Colonial Restaurant as well as a full English breakfast in the morning.

You'll find antiques and collectables under the stained glass Victorian arcade and along Lord Street Boulevard—where Napoleon is said to have stayed in 1846 and loved the tree-lined road so much he borrowed the concept for Paris—or head for Wesley Street and its charming pastel-fronted sweet, cake, and wool shops. Dabble in Southport's original draw—bathing—in the pool, so unlike Barton, you'll leave with a clear head.

• This Escape is for two people.
• One child under 3 years stays free of charge in child's cot / crib.
• One child aged 3 to 16 years is charged £15 per night in an extra bed.

  • "Just 20 miles north of Liverpool [Southport] is a traditional Victorian seaside town—but with a contemporary twist. It combines beautiful beaches, family attractions and the UK’s oldest iron pier with fantastic shopping."
