This museum was truly exceptional. The art work and furniture was beautiful. Th eonly disappointing thing was that some of the rooms were close because there was refurbishment work being carried out so we did not see the Wedgewood collection, but a lovely place to visit. The walk from the station to the gallery is worth a mention as you... More

I went along reluctantly to visit this art gallery. I expected it to be boring and a very short visit. It is anything but boring. We spent a good four hours looking around all the exhibits and then had a cuppa and piece of cake in the excellent cafe. Well worth a visit and as it is part of the... More

This is our second visit in seven months, our first visit was when the Downton Abbey costumes were displayed and that was wonderful. This time the theme was Venice. There are some beautiful paintings and exhibits, I love the Pre-Raphaelite works. Well worth a visit and all free including the free afternoon tour with a guide, our guide was Cliff... More

As a local to the art gallery, I visit the place about twice a month. The exhibits are wonderful and the gallery puts on outstanding exhibitions. Staff are always ready to help out and discuss exhibits. The gallery is in the wonderful village of Port Sunlight.

It's worth taking advantage of one of the free background guided tours to learn all about Lord Leverhulme and how he acquired his collection of art, sculptures, etc. Plus there's a really comprehensive variety of artefacts to look at and enjoy. And the gallery is set in the wonderful surroundings of Port Sunlight village.

The Lady Lever was built as a tribute to Lord lever's deceased wife and houses some of the most impressive Pre Raphelite paininting in England. As with most of Liverpool's attractions entrance to the gallery is free. Unfortunately some of the collection was on loan to an exhibition in Japan but there was plenty to see and enjoy none the...

The Lady lever Art Gallery is a real gem; a lovely collection of furniture, paintings, ceramics and other treasures and it's free. It's accessible - they lent us a wheelchair and there is a lift so most of the gallery is accessible to people in wheelchairs. There is a lovely gift shop. Port Sunlight in all makes a really nice...

Lord Leverhulme was a prolific collector of a wide range of art and this gallery, named after his wife, holds a good selection. Some lovely paintings by Millais and Turner, Wedgwood Jasperware and much, much more. Apart from purely artistic interest Lord Leverhulme also bought paintings for use in advertisements and many of the originals are here. The gallery is... More
