Lady Lever Art Gallery

Port Sunlight Village, Port Sunlight, Wirral CH62 5EQ
King George's Drive Birkenhead England CH62 5EG GB

The Gallery houses one of the UK’s finest collections of fine and decorative art. It has the best collection of Wedgewood jasperware anywhere in the world and its collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings is internationally renowned.

The gallery was founded by William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925) and is dedicated to the memory of his wife Elizabeth. Lever wanted to share his collections with the public. At first he used the library for small displays, but he needed a bigger building for his collections. Lever personally selected works of art from his huge collection for the gallery. The gallery still contains the best of his personal art collection.

Opening Times: Daily from 10am-5pm
