Home > Attractions > National Wildflower Centre

The National Wildflower Centre is a charitable visitor attraction, educational facility and conference and function venue, founded by environmental charity - Landlife.

The visitor attraction opened to the public in 2001, with funding from the Millennium Commission, and is set in the 35 acre Victorian Court Hey Park, approximately 5 miles from Liverpool city centre.

The centre exists to promote the creation of new wildflower habitats for people to enjoy and where wildlife can flourish and develop. It is a tranquil, family-friendly venue to visit and an urban haven where you will be inspired by nature.
The aim of the centre is to raise awareness about the importance of wildflowers to our environment and to educate the public in all matters concerning the creation and management of new wildflower habitats. By promoting new places for wildflowers to develop and thrive, They are playing a part to preserve our valuable native species and providing places where birds, insects and other wildlife can flourish too.


All of the money raised at the centre is put back into our charitable work to preserve our native wildflower species, so by visiting you can be sure you are making a contribution to this essential and valuable work.

The Centre has an eclectic mix of refurbished old buildings and new architecture, which are the base of their demonstration areas and events with the wildflower areas changing as the season progresses-not a neatly mown lawn in sight!
