Lady Lever Art Gallery
Set in the picturesque Port Sunlight village is the award-winning Lady Lever Art Gallery.
The gallery houses one of the most beautiful collections of fine and decorative art in the UK and includes many world famous Pre Raphaelite artworks, Chinese ceramics and Wedgwood jasperware.
The collections represent the personal taste of the first Lord Leverhulme who began buying art in the late 1880s to use as advertising for the 'Sunlight Soap' brand that he produced. From this modest beginning Leverhulme quickly grew into a discerning collector.
In his lifetime Lever collected over 20,000 works of art. Many of these are on display in the gallery today. This massive and diverse collection includes paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, textiles and ethnographic objects.
