How about a trip to Port Sunlight? A village founded by William Hesketh Lever in 1888, built to house Lever’s Sunlight Soap factory workers, but today is home to a fascinating museum, beautiful architecture, a world-class art gallery, stunning parkland and a thriving community.
The village is home to more than 900 Grade II listed buildings set in 130 acres of parkland and gardens. More than 30 different architects created the buildings, monuments and memorials we still see today, and nearly every period of British architecture is represented through revival design. The village is a good example of the aesthetic movement, which emphasised visual and sensual qualities of art and design, and the Arts and Crafts Movement, with its emphasis on traditional craftsmanship.
Port Sunlight is the perfect place to unwind, have a peaceful wander, or explore the wide boulevard of The Diamond with its rose gardens, sculpture and charming architecture.
