Sudley House has been described as a hidden gem. Tucked away in leafy suburbs, Sudley is the only house of a Victorian merchant that still has its original pictures, including works by Millais, Turner and Rossetti, and with beautiful period furniture, carpets and wallpaper it doesn't feel like a regular gallery. There is also a childhood room, a small world room and a costume room, which often house temporary displays, and tearooms. Admission is free.

We enjoyed an hour at Sudley house. Modest sized but obviously the home of a well to do merchant. Paintings are great. Video in the rooms added a personal touch to the tour. Exhibit of 1920's and 1930,s ladies fashion was interesting. very pleasant time.

I havent been here since i was 7 years old, but we decided to pop in after a trip to sefton park. Located in Mossley Hill off the beaten track and a bit hidden, this 19th century shipping magnet and philanthralopists house is now run by Liverpool Uni. Free to enter and free to park, whats not to like. Set... More

This was well worth the short trip out by train from the city centre. A lovely house with excellent interactive displays where you listen and see characters from the past talking of their life in the house. Sadly upstairs was not in situ as it was used in the war as a hospital . It would have been nice to... More

Very interesting museum in a Victorian house. Easy to reach by local train services - just a short walk from the station at Mossley.

Built in 1824 for Nicholas Robinson, a corn merchant who from 1828 to1829 was Lord Mayor of Liverpool, it is now a museum and art gallery containing the art collection of George Holt, a shipping magnate who moved there in 1883. It is located in a delightful setting on a hill which gives views of the River Mersey, Wirral and... More

When you walk into the house, you think 'Wow'. The rooms, on the ground floor, have been decorated and furnished to reflect the period George Holt lived in the house. The curtains, flooring, fireplaces and paintings are all as you would expect in a wealthy merchant's home. Video installations, in each room, introduce you to George Holt, his daughter and... More

A small but beautiful sandstone building in its own grounds which is a far away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you could wish for. A museum and art gallery containing the collection of George Holt, one of Liverpool's most famous shipping merchants. Some of the photos adorning the walls are so clear and detailed you feel...

We live on the same road as Sudley House and it's an ideal place to take our young children and other family and friends. We visit at least once per week. The house is really lovely and the grounds provide lots of space to run around. The cafe has a good selection of cakes and drinks but my review is... More
