10.40am to 4pm, Monday 16 July 2018
Join us for a guided walk around iconic Port Sunlight Village, William Lever's creation for his workers at Lever Brothers and birthplace of the now global Unilever company. Even without its unique history, this is a beautiful village of Arts and Crafts cottages, pretty gardens and shady walkways. With our guide we will be able to get inside many of the buildings, making this a special experience.
In the afternoon we have the chance to visit the Lady Lever Art Gallery, a world class collection which is famous for its Pre-Raphaelite paintings and the worlds largest collection of Wedgwood jasperware. If that doesn't tempt you, what about Lever's obsession with commodes? He collected 200 of them and many are on display here.
As the Village is so easy to access by Merseyrail services, we are meeting at the Railway Station at 10.45am. However, if you prefer to drive, there is parking at the Art Gallery. Aim to be parked by 10.30am to have time to walk over to the station.
The walk will finish at around 1.30pm at a convenient Lunch stop. After Lunch, those who wish to be shown around the Lady Lever Art Gallery can continue and we should be back at the station by about 4pm.
£5 for walk + £2 for Art Gallery per person
