Sefton Park in Liverpool is a magnificent 200-acre Park that looks like a natural landscape rather than a man-made park.
Located within the park is Sefton Park Palm House – an octagonal, 3 tiered, Grade 2* listed Victorian glasshouse displaying plants from around the world.
Sefton Park Palm House is open to the public 7 days a week with varied events programme for all the family. Also available for private and corporate hire, a unique venue for that special occasion.
Sefton Park Palm House is managed by Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust both as a visitor attraction and a private and public venue for events.
The aim of the management is that everyone can enjoy this fabulous venue of historical, architectural and horticultural interest.
Established plants from all over the world create a lusciousness inside. The collection of plants from all over the world today serves to remind people of the richness and diversity of our environment.
Sefton Park Palm House is a building of unusual architecture built to extraordinary engineering precision.
Whether relaxing on the grass, playing sport or just taking a leisurely stroll around the lake, Sefton Park has something for everyone.
As a Grade 2 listed building, Palm House is a warm and welcoming venue away from the hustle and bustle of the city – perfect for little explorers who want to wander around the exotic plants and statues.
