“Located to the south of the City Centre this park houses a stunning Victorian Palmhouse and is the best of Liverpool’s parks. No trip to Sefton Park would be complete without a walk along the uber cool Lark Lane with its fantastic range of bars and restaurants. A stalwart of the street is Keith’s Wine Bar. ”

Food Court
“We love it here! A range of micro-eateries (like the description!) where you can grab lots of different types of foods from great food stalls. These periodically change so there is always something new to try. Live music is played to keep you entertained while you munch. There is also a great bar there. If you are there in the autumn, do not miss the Oktoberfest celebration - almost as good as Munich!”

Park
“Prince's Park in Toxteth, Liverpool, England, is a 45 acres municipal park, 2 mi (3.2 km) south east of Liverpool city centre. In 2009, its status was upgraded to a Grade II Historic Park by English Heritage. The park was originally a private development (though open to the public) by Richard Vaughan Yates, the cost of which was expected to be met through the development of grand Georgian-style housing around the park.”
