Explore Port Sunlight
There are a number of ways to discover Port Sunlight Village and the amazing legacy of William Lever. For groups who want to explore the wider area, we have a series of packages that include Port Sunlight and the wider Liverpool City Region.
Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by William Lever, who created the village to house the workers of his nearby soap factory, Lever Brothers. Port Sunlight differed to other industrial model villages at the time as William Lever wanted to provide sanitary, affordable housing and good working conditions for his employees.
Today Port Sunlight is a conservation area that is historically, socially and architecturally unique. It is a home to more than 2,000 people and is filled with architecturally significant buildings, monuments, memorials and an award winning museum.
Our packages have been created with discovery and exploration in mind, enabling groups to experience something unique. The specially designed packages offer groups the chance to explore Port Sunlight and the Liverpool City Region in a new way. The packages include exclusive behind the scenes tours, stunning gardens and landscapes, architecturally significant buildings and monuments, renowned art collections, curator led tours and much more.
For groups wishing to explore the story of Port Sunlight and the legacy of village founder William Lever, we offer guided Coach and Walking Tours. All tours are led by passionate and experienced guides who showcase all the village has to offer.
