Lady Lever Art Gallery was rated the fifth most accessible tourist destination in the UK, in the Vitalise Accessible UK Tourism Report 2014.

Room closures and lift information

We are making improvements to the gallery as part of our exciting 'South End' galleries developments.

This is affecting access to some galleries and will include lift maintenance - for full details, please see our room closure information.

There is still lots of beautiful art still on display, but if you are travelling to see something specific we do advise that you call us before you set off.
