About

Please ensure that when visiting Sefton Park that you adhere to the Government guidelines around social distancing. Please - especially during these times where more visitors are attending outdoor spaces such as these - do not leave litter on Sefton Park. If bins are full, please take your litter home with you. There are no toilets at Sefton Park.

Sefton Park in Liverpool is arguably the best known and most loved by locals. Classified as a Grade One listed park by English Heritage, the magnificent 200-acre Park looks like a natural landscape rather than a man-made park. In spring the sight of millions of golden daffodils around the lake draws residents from across the city and carpets of bluebells give an impression of rural permanence.

The park features many distinctive curved paths and driveways and beech and other indigenous British trees abound. Amongst the park's many features are a boating lake, replica statues of Eros and Peter Pan and a café. The park is also home to the famous Palm House, a fabulous glass-panelled building that has been restored to its former glory. 

For more on the Palm House, take a look at our blog on the history of the Palm House.
