Byng House

The Legion’s break centre, Byng House is a great place to get away from it all and relax. Located on the promenade of Southport, the area is recognised as a leading British seaside resort and called 'England's Classic Resort' to reflect both its heritage and the new developments and facilities.

As well as the internationally acclaimed Lord Street, a mile-long tree-lined canopied boulevard renowned for the quality of its shopping, there are miles of golden sands on the beach for holiday-makers to enjoy.

Other excellent resort facilities include the pier, swimming baths, bowling greens, the Marine Lake, civic theatres, the newly refurbished Atkinson Art Gallery and 'Splash World' Water Park.

Just beyond Southport there's also a host of things to explore, with historical sites such as the Scotch Piper pub, St Catherine's Chapel, Lydiate Hall, Jubilee Woods and St Andrew's Church.

Byng House offers nightly entertainment for the enjoyment of our guests, a coach tour three times a week to local places of interest, and evening outings to a local British Legion Club for entertainment.

Byng House and our Poppy Break centres were awarded 'Hospitality Assured' in 2012.

On behalf of the staff and management, we look forward to welcoming you to Byng House, 'The Hotel with a Heart'.
