In Pictures: Lady Lever South End Galleries Re-open

The Lady Lever Art Gallery opens its new South End galleries on Good Friday, 25 March 2016 following a £2.8m major development project, part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We took a tour of the galleries before the re-opening and can show you a few photos to whet your appetite.

The new South End galleries have been returned to their original architectural glory as part of the improvement works, showcasing William Hesketh Lever’s internationally-renowned collections in a similarly impressive style to that employed by Lever when the gallery first opened in 1922.

The galleries, which closed for the refurbishment in November 2014, house more than 1,500 objects, including the best collection of Wedgwood jasperware in the world, one of the finest collections of Chinese porcelain in Europe and outstanding 18th century paintings, furniture and sculpture.
