You can easily reach Sefton Park by train. The nearest station is St. Michels, which is served by Merseyrail. Once you exit St. Michels walk up Belgrave Rd until you get to Aigburth Road. Cross the road to Lark Lane and follow Lark Lane to the end - the park will open up before you from there.

Escape to Sefton Park to enjoy 200 acres of unspoilt open space in the heart of the city. Walk or hike your way around the park, and make sure you find a shaded spot to enjoy a picnic! Amongst the park's many features are a boating lake, replica statues of Eros and Peter Pan, and a café.

Visit the Sefton Park website for opening information.


Whilst the current government advice is to only travel if your journey is essential, we will update this page as the situation changes. We will always provide official information on how to visit this attraction safely and responsibly by train.
