THE PALM HOUSE – LIVERPOOL

0

The Palm House is a hidden gem discreetly located in the heart of Sefton Park, Liverpool.  The grade II* listed victorian greenhouse is home to a stunning collection ever-changing seasonal flora.  It’s one of my favourite places in the whole city and it really speaks for itself.

The magical glass structure allows the light to flood in and traps the sun’s warming rays, so you’ll notice that it’s somewhat humid when you enter.  The sub-tropical environment within allows for plans such as banana trees to vibrant hibiscuses to grow, making it feel a bit like you’ve stepped into a different country.  From above there are hanging baskets overflowing with waves of colourful flowers and a towering green canopy which has consumed a spiral staircase.  There are marble statues that watch over and hidden benches nestled away beneath the foliage where you can take a seat.

The Palm House is one of the jewels of the city and is well worth a visit if you’re in Liverpool.  It regularly hosts events, concerts and even weddings and is free to the public year round (with a suggested £2.00 donation).
