Southport area guide

Southport was founded in 1792 when innkeeper William Sutton built a bathing house on the beach near the village of North Meols. With the population rapidly growing, shops and inns soon followed. The coming of the railway really benefitted Southport and in 1848 it was connected to Liverpool and in 1855 Southport was connected to Manchester. The iconic Southport Pier built in 1860, is the oldest and second longest iron pier in the country. The first free public library opened in 1878.

Southport boasts a packed calendar of events each year including the air show, the food and drink festival and the prestigious Southport Flower Show. Thousands of visitors flock to our picturesque seaside Town each year to enjoy the events and everything the Town has to offer. Visitors can also enjoy coastal walks, the beaches particularly at Formby and Ainsdale and the variety of independent restaurants found throughout the Town Centre and nestled in the surrounding villages.

‘Team Tinsley’ particularly enjoy the newly refurbished Southport Market. Which is now home to a wealth of different food stalls from authentic greek to sushi to bubble waffles! Open 10-10 Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday it is certainly the place to be!

Southport Reviews

Mc C McCoy

We recently sold our house through Chris Tinsley and had excellent service as we have in previous years when selling and buying with them. Paul came out initially to advise us and take photos and a video which was done at short notice on his day off to accommodate us. We were in a lengthy chain which was complicated but the sales team worked hard to keep progress going. Susanne was our contact and she did a wonderful job along with the others in the sales team. Many thanks everyone for helping us with the whole process.

Mr G Natt

Having purchased a property from Chris Tinsley, I am very impressed with the professionalism and flexibility provided to accommodate around my timings for numerous occasions, from getting builders around to multiple viewings has never been so easy. A special thanks to Susanne who has been amazing from the start, from getting the property secured to getting it over the line and completed within a month was a breeze, I will definitely be purchasing many more properties with Chris Tinsley and also look to sell my stock with them. Overall 10 out of 10 service

Mrs J Wainwright

Paul came out to my house and took pictures and even did a video of my home to put up on the internet, he was a very professional guy and a credit to Chris Tinsley. The staff at Chris Tinsley kept me updated all the time, and my home sold within a week. Very impressed with all of the team.

Mrs J McCarthy

Just a short note to thank you and your staff for all the help and advice you gave me with the sale of 1 Palace Road. I was so grateful to you for arranging the weekly inspections, as this saved me a 100 mile return journey to Southport each week. Many thanks for your first class service. Yours sincerely, J McCarthy.

Mr T Halliwell

Exceeded my expectations and provided great customer service and support. They made a difficult moving experience easier

Mr S Ward

I have been selling properties with Chris Tinsleys for 12yrs or so. There are regular updates and communications throughout the process and staff are always courteous and polite. They are my number one choice in Southport and after previously dealing with one or two others in the town, there is a big difference believe me!

S Blyth

My property went on the market in March this year and within two weeks Tinsley's had found a buyer. They accompanied all the viewings, , and kept me informed throughout. They were also dealing with the property I wanted to buy, and were very supportive when liaising between the two. Everyone in the office was so friendly and helpful getting me along the stressful 'bumpy road' that is involved with moving house. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his Team at Tinsley's Southport.

L Clements

I would highly recommend Chris Tinsley Estate agents having used them on a number of occasions their service is always excellent. The team are friendly and approachable and you can always speak with them directly. They do a lot of chasing with solicitors and other people in the chain which takes a lot of stress out of selling your house.

G Grossi

I recently moved back to Southport and bought a property that was up for sale with Chris Tinsley Estates. I cannot praise them highly enough. Having spent over a year in the midst of very stressful conveyancing, I contacted Chris Tinsley to view the property and from start to finish during the five months I dealt with them, they couldn’t do enough. I viewed the apartment at least five times and every time they couldn’t have been more accommodating. I had numerous issues with various aspects of my conveyancing journey (nothing to do with Chris Tinsley Estates) and they went above and beyond and out of their way to help me, when there was no necessity to do so. I dealt with a number of the team in the office and all were friendly, polite, positive and so helpful. I have to highlight Susanne though; she was exceptional at every stage. The customer care, can do attitude, and willingness to help is outstanding. I have experienced other agencies and with the exception of the company I used in Berkshire to sell my property, no one has come close to these standards. It’s my first experience with Chris Tinsley Estates; I should add that I knew no one there in any capacity and I was completely unknown to them. I would absolutely choose them if I had to sell a property in the future and would highly recommend them to friends and family. What impressed me the most was, they were never pushy but they were so efficient with communication and follow ups. There when you needed them and not hassling you when you didn’t. Definitely check them out if you are looking to sell a property and if you are fortunate enough to fall in love with a property they are selling, you’ll be in great hands.

We contacted Chris Tinsley Estate Agent with a view to act for us in the sale of our late parents house in Tarleton, Preston. Their valuer Paul Hamilton arranged to meet us at the property and gave a valuation which we thought was fair and accurate. Paul then laid out a sales strategy on how best to market the property which included brochures, photographs, a video and an online feature. Very important for ourselves was the fact that they could escort prospective buyers during viewings without our involvement. Thus we had no hesitation in appointing Chris Tinsley as the sole agent. The sales documents, online content and video were very professionally produced and promoted the main features very well and covered the necessary information on the house. Once the viewings got underway we liaised with their internal team which in our case was lead by Claire Bromley. Claire kept us informed at all times and each viewing was diligently followed up for feedback which in turn was passed onto us. When we received an offer from a prospective buyer, Claire was on hand to offer excellent advice and a sale was quickly agreed. At all times during the sale Claire and the team kept us informed on progress, relayed any requests the buyers had, worked closely with our solicitors and all in all it made for a smooth sales process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris Tinsley Estate Agent to any prospective seller or buyer, their service is first class and delivered in a friendly professional manner.

S Garnett

Great service and constant contact from the team

N Baxter

Exceptional service. A friend recommended the company to me and I was so pleased. They kept me updated when others didn't and were always at the end of a phone or email when needed. Absolutely first class and highly recommended. Gemma was brilliant!

M Livermore

Huge thanks to the team at Chris Tinsley Estate Agents. Especially Gemma Brown, who managed my flat purchase with great care and attention. Extremely grateful to her for providing such a professional and polite service.

D J Paynter

Gemma was a great support to us throughout ours sales process and helped support us through a range of ups and downs during our purchase. I would 100% recommend Chris Tinsley as an estate agents and especially thankful for Gemmas support and knowledge throughout.


Highly recommend. This agencies patience with my solicitor etc deserves recognition in itself. Nothing too much trouble, professional, understanding and sensitive. Thank you all.

H Knappett

We were buying through Chris Tinsley. Communication was good and often bridged the gap left by the conveyancers. They were also good at keeping the situation calm when the chain entered a couple of very difficult patches.

Mrs J Walsh

Phew!! A cloud has lifted and the sun is shining. And it's all thanks to you. I cannot thank you enough for the professional and humanitarian way in which you managed the sale of my mother's property. The process of selling a loved one's home is stressful in itself: particularly when a global pandemic is paralysing local servis and when most of your staff were stricken. But you- and everyone with whome I dealt with in your company-maintained a sense of empathy, urgency, competence, calm proficiency and above all patience with my increasing concerns over last-minute hitches and my Mother's failing health. At last it's done. I can relax and you can move on the the next challenge! I will willingly and effusively recommend you to anyone who asks. Yours sincerely. J Walsh.

Mr M Pilkington

Dear All, just wanted say thank you to you and all your staff, for all their hard work, and dedication resulting in the sale of our house. I am aware that it was not the easiest house to sell and everyone really went the extra mile for us. Thank you.

Mr T Boardman

Just a note to thank you for the excellent service provided in selling my property. We found the assistance and information provided was most helpful and enabled the process to proceed in a calm and orderly manner. We would have no hesitation in using your agency again and recommending it to others.

Mr and Mrs B

Thank you very much for selling our bungalow and for being so helpful. Your professionalism and efficiency made everything so much easier for us. Our thanks and very best wishes to you all

Mr L

I wanted to let you know how extremely happy I am with the level of service your team has given me. The cheeriness and enthusiasm was outstanding and the service was always personal yet professional from my initial enquiry to the final sensitive negotiations and successful completion. I am very pleased and most appreciative and I would like to thank all concerned

Mr and Mrs D

We have recently purchased the above property through your estate agency and wanted to say what an excellent service we received. Over Several weeks we were in contact with the girls in the office, who were always friendly, helpful and very professional. If it had not been for one staff member the deal could have fallen through, she listened with patience and sympathy to our frustration and then proceeded to use her considerable negotiation skills to complete the sale. Many thanks and well done to all

Mr T

"This is just a note to offer my sincere thanks to you and your team for all of your help on the sale of the property. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone in the future. The staff, throughout the process, were highly responsive to my requests, extremely courteous and very professional in the manner with which they dealt with matters before them and were a credit to you, once again“ Thank you

Ms R

I feel compelled to write to you to express my appreciation for the excellent service from yourself and your team concerning the sale of my flat. Over the past 9 months I have been to most of the Estate Agents in Southport as both potential buyer and seller. Your company is easily the very best especially for efficiency and customer/client service. As a women on her own trying to negotiate all the twists and turns of buying and selling property; I have been quite overwhelmed by the considerat and helpful manner of you staff. Although Janet and Carole deserve special mention I suspect everyone would have treated me with the same respect and courteousness. You, and they, are to be congratulated
