Grillust™ Autumn Tour 2011 - Destination No.1

Location: Southport
Date: Monday 14 November
Distance from Carlisle: 106 miles
Grillust™ Operative: Tony

Southport Fast Fact 1: although it's on the coast, a visit to Southport town centre doesn't result in a view of the sea.

Southport Fast Fact 2: Harpers Fish & Chip Restaurant is the 3rd best your correspondent has ever sampled!

Southport Slow Fact:
During his exile, future French Emperor Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte lived on Lord Street (first 7 images on postcard above). His subsequent redevelopment of the centre of Paris is claimed to have been inspired by this wide, stately thoroughfare (honestly, I'm not making this up)!
