Lovely collection beautifully presented and a compact venue. Highly recommended and it is free. The cafe downstairs was disappointing.

A beautiful building situated in a really prominent position at the head of the memorial gardens which houses beautiful pieces of art from the eighteenth and nineteenth century.

Admission is free. This gallery is AMAZING. Too much to see in one visit if you want to appreciate all the exhibits. The Wedgwood Collection is said to be the largest in the world. We will return for a further visit...

I do not think I would have been so impressed if I had not taken the free tour. The guide Cliff really brought the exhibits alive and added so much more to the history of the Lever family. The nearby museum completes the picture.

Great free place to bring the children to explore and learn about art and history. Also some great rooms downstairs dedicated to children who can role play and do lots of drawing and brass transfers.

Great place to visit, lots to see and do, at weekends they have music in the main hall the last visit it was classical guitar, there is also a nice restaurant/cafe selling home made food and good tea and coffee, free entry and free parking.
