Croxteth Hall and Country Park

Croxteth Hall and Country Park is a grade II listed park and great family day out which seems to transport you far further than the 20 minute drive from the city centre. At its centre is the regal Croxteth Hall, the former country estate and ancestral home of the Earls of Sefton. Original construction of the Hall began as far back as 1575, and the architecture shows traces of the Tudor, Georgian, and Queen Anne styles. The Hall is now managed by the council, who programme concerts, fairs and markets in this spectacular setting—including the popular monthly Farmers Market which began life as a COVID secure way for local farmers to sell their wares. You can explore the Hall itself, taking in a tour of its opulent Edwardian interior design. The ticket prices also gets you into the walled garden with its fruit trees and glass houses bursting with Liverpool’s historic botanical collections.

The Hall sits in the middle of 500 acres of stunning woodlands, pastures, ponds, and streams. Walks are clearly marked out to guide you through its networks of paths and trails, and it’s a popular site with runners too. Children are especially well catered for, with Croxteth Park Farm offering the chance to get inside a traditional, working Victorian farm. The Farm houses many different species and rare breeds of farm livestock, including beautiful Irish Moiled cattle. The Farm welcomes family groups and school trips, and is looking forward to it’s post-COVID re-opening.

So whether it’s a tour of the Hall, a long walk round woodlands and streams, or a trip to the Farm, Croxteth Hall and Country Park is a great place to spend a day in the great outdoors, only a stone’s throw from the city centre. The diverse activities make it unique among Liverpool’s other popular parks, like Sefton Park and Stanley Park.
