Visit Sefton Park



Sefton Park looks just amazing if you are lucky enough to see it after the snow has fallen.

Palm House will be offering some festive events during December, transformed into a snowy mountain backdrop, the Grade II-listed will be hosting The Snow Queen.

Among these activities mentioned before, you´ll find Christmas Salsa Under the Palms, Carlo Concerts and festive Musical Memories.


Choose a Christmas tree



Let me guess…You’ve always thought about it but never actually done it?

Now is your chance, take your family to Delamere Forest and have some quality time while you choose a  fresh new Christmas tree for your home.

The kids can even meet Santa in his grotto so I believe that makes a perfect Saturday plan 🙂
