About

The Lady Lever Art Gallery is regarded as one of the finest art galleries in Europe. It's located in model village, Port Sunlight in Wirral, a place rich in architectural charm. 

The gallery was founded by William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925) and is dedicated to his wife Elizabeth, Lady Lever. Lever wanted to share his collections with the public and the works on display at the gallery have been personally selected. 

Inside the gallery, visitors will find the best of Lever's personal art collection and the finest collection of Wedgewood jasperware anywhere in the world. The Pre-Raphaelite painting collection is internationally renowned and features works by Millais, Rossetti, Burne-Jones and Holman Hunt. 

For younger visitors, the activity rooms are an interactive space where they can get hands-on and have fun with crafts, dressing up and story telling. 

Lady Lever often houses temporary exhibitions and popular free events, be sure to check the website before visiting. 

Before leaving, browse the gift shop or enjoy a bite to eat in the Gallery Cafe.
