It was opened on 4 September 1882 as the terminus of the West Lancashire Railway from Preston; it replaced the temporary terminus at Windsor Road which had been in use since 10 June 1878.

The station was designed by the architect Charles Henry Driver and also known as Southport Derby Road.

From 2 September 1887 it was also the terminus of the Liverpool, Southport and Preston Junction Railway whose services to Liverpool ran over the Cheshire Lines Committee's route between Altcar and Hillhouse and Aintree, and then over the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (LYR) into Liverpool Exchange.

In July 1897, both lines were absorbed into the LYR. Southport Central closed to passengers on 1 May 1901 when all services were transferred to the nearby Southport Chapel Street station. It remained in use as a goods depot until 3 December 1973. The old station has subsequently been demolished and is now a supermarket car park.
