Port Sunlight is a garden village, and the finest surviving example of early urban planning in the UK. It was founded by the industrialist William Hesketh Lever (later Viscount Leverhulme) in 1888 to house workers of his soap factory. Set in 130 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland, the village features cottages in a mix of architectural styles alongside community buildings (including the former Girls’ Club which now houses the museum), fine public sculptures, and one of the largest war memorials in the UK. The whole village is a Designated Conservation Area.
