Author: Visit Wirral

Port Sunlight Museum & Garden Village, 'Wirral Independent Business of the Year' 2017, 'Wirral Attraction of the Year' 2016 & 2015 and 'Small Visitor Attraction of the Year' at the 2015 and 2014 Liverpool city Region Tourism Awards, is a unique and beautiful 19th century garden village created solely for the Sunlight Soap factory workers.


Step inside Port Sunlight Museum and meet the village's creator, 'Soap King' William Hesketh Lever. Discover his vision for the village and its residents.

Find out about the architects who designed the houses, principal buildings and landscapes. Experience what it was like to live and work here during the village's heyday. Within the exhibition you will get an insight into different characters who lived and worked in the village during its early years.

From the museum follow a trail around the village, enjoy the stunning architecture and well planned landscaped displays. With plenty of refreshments stops on route, there is something to please everyone's tastes, from boutique hotel serving afternoon tea' lunch and dinner, to tea rooms and cafes, including the Museum's own tea rooms. If 'pub grub' is your preference, you have the choice of two Inn's serving good home cooked food, and a favourite with many is the garden centre country style café.

If you ever wondered what it was like to live in the village, you now have the chance to find out! Why not stay in one of three holiday cottages, with spectacular views across the diamond and fountain, catch a show in the evening at the village theatre, a popular venue with bar facilities and great entertainment.

If you wished you really did live in the village, now you can! The Trust who manage the village have a number of rental properties available, from 3 bedroom houses to one/two bed apartments, all fitted out to a high 4 and 5 star standard.

With so much to offer, Port Sunlight Village is a fascinating place to be, with a world renowned art gallery displaying one of the most beautiful collections of fine and decorative arts in the UK, the village church, 'Christchurch', with a peal of eight bells, is also the place were both Lord and Lady Lever are buried in the church grounds.

Port Sunlight is a most interesting day out with plenty of choice of eateries, you can relax, unwind, meander and take it all in. Port Sunlight has a programme of events throughout the year - see their website.
