The Lady Lever art gallery is in the beautiful "worker" village of Port Sunlight. It is easy to get to by train. Get off at Bebington stop and it is around a 400m walk. Or drive by car.

The gallery is not huge so it can be visited in a couple of hours or less. It is mostly eighteen and nineteeth century paintings.

It is known for it's Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Holman Hunt, Millais and Leighton but there is stuff by Turner and Gainsborough also.

There are also sculpture rooms, period rooms and various other collections on display plus a history of soap advertising. (Lever = Unilever today).

There is a downstairs restaurant/cafe and shop which looked busy.

Overall it is an excellent museum in a picturesque location.
