We have just spent a wonderful afternoon in the art gallery. It's just an unexpected treasure. We were amazed at the content of the Gallery. So many fantastic exhibits and amazing paintings. Too much to take in on one visit. We will definitely be going again.

Not the biggest gallery in the world, but some lovely paintings and other art forms. Some iconic Sunlight paintings to see. The cafe in the basement is really nice. Staff very friendly. Really enjoyed the visit. And the gallery is free.

Visiting Merseyside, don't miss out on the extraordinary art collection and exhibitions at the Lady Lever, take a walk around the village and see the housing Lord Lever Hulme built for his workers. Over a billion in arts works, don't miss this one.

The collection is wide ranging and eclectic, reflecting the taste of a single wealthy collector, Lord Lever. Lord Lever was, indeed, a great philanthropist - the reason we can have the pleasure of visiting this gallery! The collection is consistently of the highest quality and is well worth the short journey from the city of Liverpool. It is situated in... More

Something of interest for everyone and laid out so that each room becomes a surprise and it is not just pictures because it is Lord Lever's collection accumulated over years of travelling the world. It is free to see, as undoubtedly Lord Lever intended!

Thanks to Merseyrail we were able to spend three hours enjoying the fruits of Lord Lever's collection named in honour of his wife who sadly died before the gallery was open. There is much to see but we majored on the Venetian exhibition which was different in that there were many views of the city made by important but lesser... More

The Lady Lever Art Gallery stands in the beautiful village of Port Sunlight. It's free entry and apart from the lovely paintings on display there is also wide variety of antique furniture to see. There are many exhibitions and events held there through the year. This weekend we enjoyed the showing of "picturing Venice". The history of Port Sunlight is... More

Absolutely fascinating guided tour around the gallery, which gives an insight into the opulence of the times in which Lord Lever built the Port Sunlight soap empire. Great day out for elderly parents and would also make an interesting day out for Schools or educational groups. Really impressed with the wealth of knowledge of the guide, who brought the experience... More
