Went this weekend. It is most interesting to anyone interested in 19th century art and culture indeed any person over about 60 will be familiar with many of the paintings. Go there see the collection, go to the good cafe, and the interesting shop. It is at present closed in a few rooms due to refurbishment but shortly to be... More

Visit to the museum in Port Sunlight, was a lovely experience and a delight. Very informative and gave a wonderful accounnt of the lives of those who lived and worked there.

Port Sunlight is a fascinating, beautiful place. A complete village created by William Lever for his workers at the Sunlight soap factory. The large site - much bigger than I expected - comprises a museum, art gallery, church, pub and various statues and attractions, as well as a large number of houses that reflect the architectural styles of the late...

We had lunch at the Port Sunlight Museum tearoom. The service was good and the menu offered a fair range of choices. The food was quite good too, but at 5 pounds for quiche and salad, I would expect a more generous slice of quiche, and more than one cherry tomato, two slices of cucumber, a few small lettuce leaves,...
