Driving there looking at all the houses surrounding was like watching midsummer murders but it reminded me of the hornby model railways sets with the model houses. First had some cake and tea in the cafe (I think it's the same company who does the liverpool museums). Rather a nice treat. Then headed into the museum itself. The interior was... More

This Museum and Art Gallery is a must to visit. From the outside it does not look very large but it contains a large collection of artefacts and paintings - including some from truly famous artists. Entry free, and like many such attractions all donations welcome. The food and service in the basement cafeteria were both very good - prices... More

The Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight is definitely worth the visit. A lot of ancient/art work, antiques and other kinds of exhibitions which can be fascinating. For an Art Gallery, there is no place to find it better for the likes of Port Sunlight; as it's just in the heart of the village. Not to mention, there is... More

This is a wonderful Art Gallery with so much of interest it's hard to take it all in. There's just one thing missing - the main attraction, Millais' Black Brunswicker, which is on the cover of the Liverpool Museums souvenir book and which features on the banner flying in front of the museum. It turns out this much-loved and much-touted... More
