Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight Village, CH62 5EQ – Visit Now

The Neo-Classical Lady Lever Art Gallery was founded in 1922 by “Sunlight Soap” magnate William Lever, 1st Viscount Leverhulme, and dedicated to the memory of his wife. It is located on the Wirral, just outside Liverpool, in the model village of Port Sunlight – also created by the philanthropic Lever brothers, this time to accommodate their soap-making workforce. This gem of a gallery has an incredible collection of Victorian paintings and sculptures, including some of the world’s best-known Pre Raphaelite artworks by the likes of Holman Hunt and Edward Burne-Jones. The Gallery also has a cafe and small shop, while the wide, rose-lined boulevards of Port Sunlight, replete with fountains, memorials and black-and-white timbered homes, makes for a day-tripping kind of a treat. There’s a sweet garden centre nearby, too.
