Lady Lever Art Gallery

Okay, so it’s not strictly in Liverpool, but the Wirral is close enough. Founded by William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925), the Lady Lever Art Gallery is dedicated to his wife Elizabeth and still features a large offering from his personal art collection, including the best collection of Wedgwood Jasperware in the world.

Set on the first floor of John O’Keefe and Son Ltd, The Gallery aims to support local artists with regular exhibitions and featured artists. The Gallery is also in fine company with the likes of Ghetto Golf and Red Brick Vintage just a stone’s throw away.
