The Lady Lever Art Gallery is an art gallery in Liverpool that's home to one of the UK's finest collections of fine and decorative art. You'll find it just over the water from Liverpool in Port Sunlight, on the Wirral. 

The art gallery was founded by William Hesketh Lever and dedicated to his wife Elizabeth. However, he didn't just want to keep his personal art collection to himself; he wanted to share it with the public and the best pieces of it are still on display in the gallery. If you'd like to find out more about the gallery's founder, a permanent exhibition has been in place since 2008 telling the story of how William Lever built the gallery and his art collection. The collections include Wedgwood, Chinese ceramics and 18th century furniture. Restorations are being undertaken to restore the gallery to its former glory.

The Lady Lever Art Gallery is easily reachable by car or by public transport. Simply head over to the Wirral through the Mersey tunnel or get off the train at Bebington or Port Sunlight station.
