Sefton Park Palm House is a Grade II listed Victorian glasshouse near to Liverpool City Centre. Its set in the heart of Sefton Park, a 235-acre Grade 1 historic area which has also been the inspiration for a number of Beatles tracks! This venue is truly a masterpiece of Victorian architecture and houses a historic botanical collection of plants from across the world. The venue first opened its door to the public in 1896, and it quickly became a popular attraction for plant enthusiasts and horticulturists.
A Liverpool Icon
During World War II, the Palm House was badly damaged in the Liverpool Blitz and fell into disrepair for many decades. However, in the nineties, it was renovated at a cost of £3.5m, and after years of hard work, it was re-opened to the public in 2001. Today, the Palm House is an iconic Liverpool landmark and a popular wedding venue. It has also won the award of Hitched Best City Wedding Venue, and it’s not hard to see why.
With space for up to 220 guests, the stunning orangery has a high glass ceiling which creates an impressive three-tier dome conservatory. On the outside it creates a strong focal point amongst the surrounding Sefton Park, much in the same way The Ashton Memorial does in Lancaster.
The venue hosts around 65 weddings a year and both ceremonies and receptions can take place inside the Palm House. This allows you to have your whole day all in one stunning location. The venue’s incredible all-glass backdrop provides a constant supply of natural light, perfect for photos and video, and the myriad of tropical palm trees really do give a destination wedding vibe to the place.
