In the south of Liverpool you'll find Sefton Park. This stunning Victorian park covers almost a square kilometre and is specially protected by English Heritage as a historic monument. If you visit Sefton Park you'll see that the centrepiece is a seven-acre lake, which is surrounded by circular footpaths, sports areas and trees. The cricket pitch once hosted a match featuring the legendary WG Grace. Look out too for the huge 19th-century Palm House conservatory, as well as the statues and monuments scattered among the greenery. The Victorian bandstand is even thought to have been an inspiration for the Beatles' song Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
