The perfect visit, no matter rain or shine, with things to do both indoor and outdoor. Take a step back to 1888, with a family visit to Port Sunlight Village. See how life of the ‘Sunlight Soap’ factory workers differs to modern day with a fascinating museum, a World-class gallery and incredible architecture. Whilst you’re visiting the museum, you will also be able to step into nature, with stunning parkland, perfect for a picnic!
The village was originally built to house the factory workers, by ‘Soap King’ William Hesketh Lever. The museum tells Lever’s story and vision for the workers of his Sunlight Soap Factory.
Explore how the village developed over the years, from the working and living conditions to the charming architecture. The museum is packed with tales and nostalgia, from displays of vintage soap packaging to Ringo Starr’s first performance with the Beatles in the village in 1962. Through film shows, interactives, models and an array of intriguing artefacts you can discover the tale of this inspirational village.
As part of your Port Sunlight Experience ticket, visitors get a chance to step inside a worker’s cottage and experience everyday life in Port Sunlight in Edwardian times. Visitors can explore the recreated home of the Carr Family who were long-time tenants and worked in the Lever Brothers factory. The historic cottage, Number 22, is right next door to the museum and you’ll be given a warm welcome by our volunteers.
The perfect day out full of history, education, walking and nature! Book your tickets to Port Sunlight Village now!
