Sefton Park Things to Do: 19 reviews and 19 photos
The historic Palm House was first opened in 1896, and is home to an exotic collection of plants and palm trees.
A bombing raid during the Second World War destroyed every frame of glass in the Palm House. It was reglazed in the 1950's at a cost of £6163. But by the 1980's vandalism and disrepair meant that the Palm House had become an unsafe derelict eyesore and it was sealed off and threatened with demolition.
Thankfully a painstaking £2.5m lottery funded refurbishment programme has seen the building finally restored to it's former glory - it truly is a magnificent sight again, standing on a slight hill in Sefton Park.
