“One of the country's top art galleries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

In a wonderful setting and a magnificent building this is most certainly one of the UK's top art galleries. A wealth of visual art, sculpture and historical background for all to see at no cost. Also there was a bonus for us, as during our visit, there was an exhibition of Turner originals on display.. The tea room does great food and drink.

“Lovely afternoon out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

This art gallery and museum is located in Port Sunlight Village, Wirral. The village itself is a really nice area to walk around with different types of cottages all built by the owner of Lever Brothers factory for his factory workers at the beginning of the last century. The art gallery and museum is a really interesting place to visit with many pictures and ceramics with various exhibitions at different times in the year. It is very well laid out and there is a nice tea rooms in the basement which also sells lunches. Entrance is free and the staff are very helpful.

“Excellent Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

A wonderful gallery with many beautiful exhibits and some world famous paintings on display.Great to get re acquainted with those fabulous Pre Raphaelites. We loved the stunning collection of Chinese porcelain and the Turner Exhibition, also the advertising as art section, very interesting. An added bonus was the orchestral concert of film music played by the brilliant Port Sunlight Orchestra.If we lived in London we would have to pay a small fortune to view such a superb collection and to be so wonderfully entertained.
