Croxteth Hall & Country Park Admission Tickets

Hall and Walled Garden tickets are available on-line, Home Farm tickets are available for purchase at the Home Farm shop daily. 

Croxteth Hall and Country Park is one of Liverpool's most important heritage sites, one of "the finest working country estates in the North West" and - with our events and education programme - helped make Liverpool a winner of the European Capital of Culture 2008.

The estate has four main attractions - The Historic Hall, Croxteth Home Farm, the Victorian Walled Garden and a 500 acre country park including Croxteth Local Nature Reserve.

The Historic Hall
 Imagine you are a guest at an Edwardian country house. Enjoy the elegant surroundings and an opulent lifestyle, waited on hand and foot, perhaps taking tea with Lady Sefton.

Or imagine being a servant, rising early and toiling in the kitchens, scrubbing floors or carrying coal, all under the watchful eye of the housekeeper and butler.
Generations of the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton, lived at Croxteth Hall from the sixteenth century until the death of the last Earl in 1972.

Home Farm

Children and adults will enjoy the sights and sounds of country life! Get close to all the animals (cows, pigs, horses, sheep, etc) on a real working farm.

See the traditional Victorian farmyard, home to an important collection of rare farm breeds of the past. Also learn about modern farming, watch our livestock grazing in the Country Park and look at the small animals collection. 

Displays, demonstrations and special events in the Farm throughout the year let you find  out more about rural life.

The Farm Manager arranges to have baby animals around the farmyard at most times throughout the year, such as this day old lamb. There are also usually piglets, chicks and often calves to be seen.

Feeding Time on the Farm - keep your tickets and return to the farm to watch feeding time at 3.45pm each day. Farm tickets are valid for re-entry to the farm for Feeding Time only on the day of purchase.

Victorian Walled Garden

Relax in the peace of the Victorian Walled Garden. Concealed by high walls, this hidden treasure is almost untouched by time. 

A quiet stroll around the garden reveals the ingenuity of bygone gardeners - heated 'flue' walls, ornate fruit trees, a mushroom house and exotic fruit in greenhouses.

Colourful scented borders lead to well-stocked vegetable plots once tended by gardeners growing produce for 'the big house'. 

Single out some ideas for your own garden or simply savour a classic kitchen garden of the Victorian era. Our gardeners are always pleased to give advice or help answer any questions you may have.

If you are interested in hiring the Walled Garden for a private function please contact us.

Country Park

Enjoy a peaceful stroll in the country, surrounded by magnificent woodland, grazing livestock and traditional cottages. The landscape here has changed little in over a century.
 
Miles of paths throughout the park allow you to escape the crowds for a breath of fresh air.

The Park is an excellent place to see wildlife - the birdsong and wild flowers will soon make you forget you are only six miles from the City Centre. Croxteth Country Park contained Liverpool's first Local Nature Reserve - Mull Wood. This LNR has recently been expanded to almost double the size and is now called Croxteth Local Nature Reserve. Volunteers frequently come along and join in events to help us improve habitats in the LNR. See our event listings for further details.

Take care
 As you explore the Country Park please take care of yourself and those with you. Croxteth Country Park is here to be enjoyed by people of all ages and interests. Please leave only footprints and take only photographs and memories so that future generations can continue to enjoy all the park has to offer.
Croxteth Home Farm animals graze in the fields. Please ensure that your dogs are kept under very close control and do net let them into the farm fields. Pick up after your dogs and put their waste in the bins provided.
We want you to enjoy your visit, but please be aware there are natural hazards in the countryside. Some of the water is deep; some plants and insects can sting; tree roots and low branches can catch you unawares.

Children will love the adventure playground and all ages can learn to ride at the Earl's former Stables.
