The Palm House

Sefton Park Palm House is an octagonal, 3 tiered, Grade II* listed Victorian glasshouse displaying plants from around the world.

Originally constructed and opened in 1896 the Palm house was subsequently damaged in the Liverpool Blitz of May 1941 when a bomb fell nearby and shattered the glass. It was re-glazed in 1950 but again closed in the 1980s on the grounds of safety.

In June 1992,a petition was presented to the City Council by what had become the "Save the Palm House" campaign. A public fund raising campaign was established, with a "sponsor a pane" programme generating over £35,000. The Palm House was partially repaired and reopened in 1993. It was fully restored at a cost of £3.5 million with Heritage Lottery and European funding and reopened in September 2001.

The site is now very popular with tourists and locals alike and is a beautiful setting for a wedding. Without a doubt a stunning and magical venue.
