About

The Palm House is now open 10am - 5pm following the lockdown period. Masks are required and visitors must pre-book a slot to visit here. 

The Sefton Park Palm House is a Grade ll* listed building, the jewel of Sefton Park and an iconic Victorian Glasshouse.

The botanical collection has over 200 plants, some of which are extremely rare and one that is extinct in the wild. They are representative of 5 continents. The Palm House is a charity and popular visitor attraction. We offer free entertainment and a diverse range of community events. The Palm House is also available for venue hire.

Henry Yates Thompson was the eldest son of an important banking family from Liverpool and the great nephew of the founder of Princes Park. In 1896 he gifted £10,000 to the city to fund the construction of the Palm House. During the Blitz of May 1941 the Palm House was badly damaged. It was later rescued by the “Save the Palm House” campaign in 1992. We have now been open since 1993 and the Palm House has only flourished since, so come along and check out one of our browser books to learn more about collection or the history. Have a chat with one of our wonderful welcome hosts or volunteers who are on hand to answer any questions you might have.

We now also have a Café which you can visit to get a nice warm drink if you are out on a walk or have come specially.

The building is open to the public daily with varying hours from Spring through to Winter, Please check our website for opening times & event exceptions.
