    Very interesting and informative. Gives a good background on the development and why it was built. A very astute and clever man! Make sure you watch the short film.  more »

  • What a very interesting place to visit Well worth the entry price I don't understand how people can complain about the cost we spent a good 2 hours in the museum and then worked over to the Lady Leaver Art Gallery which is free. I am not a lover of old paintings but this is also well worth a visit because it holds old furniture and other curious items.
  • A really good and interesting visit. Well worth it. Friendly staff keen to answer any questions.
  • Absolute "must see" for its architecture and forward thinking concept. Take a guided tour with a highly knowledgeable local guide.
  • Port Sunlight is a model village and suburb in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, Merseyside, it is located between Lower Bebington and New Ferry, on the Wirral Peninsula. Port Sunlight was built by Lever Brothers to accommodate workers in its soap factory (now part of Unilever); work commenced in 1888. The name is derived from Lever Brothers' most popular brand of cleaning agent, Sunlight. Port Sunlight contains 900 Grade II listed buildings, and was declared a Conservation Area in 1978. Port Sunlight has been informally suggested for World Heritage Site (WHS) status to protect it from development and to preserve the unique character for future generations; however, it is not yet on the current UK "tentative list" for future consideration as a WHS. .
  • Love this place. Great collection of pre-Raphaelite paintings
