The Atkinson, home of A Great Little Place café, is sailing strong at #1 on TripAdvisor

Since its opening on Lord Street The Atkinson has championed culture, art and crafts in Southport. Perhaps a slightly unexpected contemporary hub on the high street it has attracted a lot of compliments on review site TripAdvisor.

A free of charge space The Atkinson contains a library, puts on performance art and plays, hosts art exhibitions and concerts, and houses A Great Little Place café. A non-profit that supports people with autism A Great Little Place has become a staple stop for lunch, delicious homemade cakes or even pre-show dining when visiting The Atkinson. 

Ann W said; “Step inside and you can instantly see that you’re in for a treat. A lovely cafe awaits with a good selection of food and great coffee. The gift shop has some unique pieces of jewellery and other gifts. There’s also a library, but upstairs you will find the museum and gallery. Lots of paintings and exhibitions that change on a regular basis. But there’s more! An excellent theatre and studio with theatre and music to suit all tastes. Be sure to step into this lovely building and have a good look around. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.”

We are happy as clams that The Atkinson has made it to number 1 on TripAdvisor’s list of Things to do in Southport! A Great Little Place’s consistent friendly service and high quality food has contributed towards this success and in turn this has contributed to the continued support of autistic people. We would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has taken the time to visit The Atkinson and its café A Great Little Place in Southport.
