  • A lovely, historic house built in 1824, which is now a museum and art gallery containing the collection of George Holt, a shipping-line owner and former resident. 
  • Sudley House has been described as a hidden gem. Tucked away in the leafy suburbs with its wonderful artworks it's easy to see why. Sudley is the only house of a Victorian merchant that still has its original pictures, and with the period furniture and rich atmosphere you could almost imagine it's still someone's home. And it is all FREE!
  • Great place to visit plenty to see
  • a rather nice place to visit
  • Sudley House. I had not visited the house and grounds for about ten years, my mother not since she was a child and had memories of using the building as her functioning public library. Today the place is run by National Museums of Liverpool. Entry is free and Sudley's primary usage is gallery space, most of the artwork and furniture is permanently on display with temporary displays/exhibitions to be found in specific rooms upstairs. During my visit the visiting feature was Costume Drama: Fashion from 1790 to 1850 Fashions from the period of Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice'. The gardens/park are as impressive as the house itself. The cafe prices are little steep but the quality was excellent and the setting a delight. Highly recommended.
  • Fab little gallery with very friendly helpfull staff. Lovely tea rooms and beautiful grounds to wander in.
