Once you have stayed in Dukes Folly Hotel, we are sure you will relax and enjoy as comfortable as at home.

William Sutton was commonly known as the Old Duke, The Founder of Southport. He was born at Churchtown North Meols A.D. 1752 and died there May 22 1840. He erected almost upon this spot A.D. 1792 the First House in what is now the flourishing Town of Southport then a wilderness of Sandhills, the house originally called 'Dukes Folly' was afterwards know as the Original Hotel. A Memorial Tablet, taken from its walls has been placed on the N.E. side of this Column and this street has received the name of Duke Street in remembrance of the Old Duke.

Southport is one of the nicest places in UK. It is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. There are seashore walks, the Marine Lake, Pleasureland fun park, sandy beaches and everything a seaside holiday might demand. Fesitvals run throughout the year, the Jazz Festival, the Flower Show, the Air Show, the Golf Open.

Victorian buildings are everywhere along the Lord Street. Lord Street is the first Boulevard before the Champs Elysees in Paris of France. It was told that the exciled Prince Louis Napolean lived in Southport in 1838 and admired the long straight wide tree-lined Lord Street. Later he remembered Lord Street's elegance when he returned to France as Emperor and he transformed Paris with its now famous Boulevards.
