This was our first port of call during our visit to Port Sunlight and it certainly set the bar. The museum is small but well designed and structured imparting the history of the Lever brothers and their vision for a modern factory and village for their employees at Port Sunlight are well described, informative and very interesting. The nominal charge... More

Port Sunlight's little jewel! The staff are amazing and so helpful. I take my grandmother here every time she comes to visit because it takes her back in time with all the wonderful goodies they have to sell at very reasonable prices. This is a must visit location when you visit Port Sunlight.

We visited on a cold and windy Saturday morning in January. The museum is small but very interesting and well developed. The staff were exceptionally knowledgable and helpful. The gift shop is also great, not full of the usual old tat that attraction gift shops offer. The whole village is really well kept and the Lady Lever gallery is a... More

Loved the black and white houses in the little quaint village. The museum was great the amazing chandeliers sparked in the light... Just a really pleasant place to go.

Being lovers of this type of architecture we have wanted a day at port sunlight village for a long time. We stayed over Sunday night in the area so it was my option to decide what to do yesterday as a birthday treat. I quickly decided on a day trip to the village. We started our tour with a visit...

Always wanted to visit here and took the opportunity whilst in Warrington. What a wonderful place to live in, and for the Victorian workers it was built for it must have been heaven. Visitors center very good, nicely laid out and a good 15 minute film of the story of Port Sunlight. Shop is a cut above most museum shops... More
