Southport: Wayfarers Arcade

The Wayfarers Arcade is a Grade II listed structure in Southport's famous shopping street - Lord Street. Opened in October 1898, it was originally called the Leyland Arcade, being named after Southport M.P. Sir Herbert Leyland. 
The design of the glass roof is striking and allows plenty of natural daylight.

  1. The higher level view gives the impression of a prison! Some fine shops here.
