Southport Pleasureland is an amusement park in Southport, Merseyside, England, UK. In September 2006, the park closed as a permanent theme park and became a location for travelling showmen to place their rides. However, over recent years the park has begun to reinstall more permanent attractions, particularly from defunct parks such as Camelot Theme Park. The park was once owned by the Thompson family, who own the nearby Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
