Port Sunlight Museum Tickets from £8.00
Port Sunlight Museum tells the story of 'Soap King' William Lever and his vision to create a village for workers at 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.
Next door to Port Sunlight Museum at Number 22, you can step inside a recreated worker’s cottage and experience what everyday life was like in Port Sunlight in Edwardian times. Explore the home of the Carr Family who were long-time tenants and worked in the Lever Brothers factory. The cottage is filled with artefacts and you’ll be given a warm welcome by our volunteers, who will share the story of this special house.
With your Port Sunlight Experience ticket, you can also visit the family-friendly SoapWorks exhibition based in the old village schoolroom or book onto a guided walking tour of the village.
The village itself is certainly worth a stroll around. Marvel at the rows of Arts and Crafts-inspired houses that line the village's leafy streets and explore the stunning parks and gardens. You can purchase a self guided trail of the Village from Port Sunlight Museum for just £1.50.
Step back in time to discover the extraordinary story of a unique village.
From interactive displays and fascinating artefacts to an Edwardian Worker's Cottage, there's plenty for the whole family to explore.
