Pontins Southport has become the latest holiday park in the group to suddenly close.

A statement on the Pontins’ website and its Official Pontins Holidays Facebook page was shared yesterday (3 January), which said: “It is with great sadness we announce the closure of Pontins Southport Holiday Park.

“After assessing the future viability of the park, we have come to the difficult decision to close our doors. Unfortunately, this means Pontins Southport Holiday Park will be closing from Wednesday 3 January 2024. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

Pontins said guests who had booked to stay at the Southport park, in Merseyside, would be refunded.

There are now just two parks left in the Pontins brand, after Pontins suddenly closed two at the end of November 2023.

No public explanation was given by Pontins or owner Britannia Hotels at the time, but employees were told in an email the closure was due to a ‘decline in business’, according to reports.

The two remaining parks are Pakefield in Suffolk and Sand Bay in Somerset.
