Sefton Park Palm House is a Grade II* listed Victorian palm house situated in leafy glades of Sefton Park, 2 miles from Liverpool City Centre.

It was built in 1896 and gifted to the city by Henry Yates Thompson. It is managed by Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust and contains plants from around the world. Statues of naturalists and explorers stand guard at each of the octagional corners. It is open to the public 7 days a week and there is a varied programme of events (mostly free) to enjoy.

It provides a superb location for private celebrations and is available to hire for weddings, parties, dinners, award ceremonies and balls.
