Take a grand tour of Sudley’s grounds

Every September sees hundreds of historic cultural venues open to the public for Heritage Open Days and here at the museums, we’re extending our celebration of the Liverpool’s heritage with activities and events taking place throughout September.

Liverpool is rich in architectural beauties but there are many buildings, which haven’t survived the scourge of time. At the Museum of Liverpool there will be four talks given over two days about some of the city’s former buildings. There will be a talk on the Liverpool Sailor’s Home (the gate of which now stands in Liverpool One), Liverpool’s Overhead Railway and Customs House, Gerard Gardens and Liverpool’s lost castles.

Another of Liverpool’s beauties is Sudley House, located in the leafy Mossley Hill. Sudley is the UK’s only surviving Victorian Merchant’s art collection in its original domestic setting. This weekend there will be tours of the grounds with the chance to see copies of the original land plans of the area which map out roads that still exist today, such as Aigburth Road and Rose Lane. The tour will finish up in the house with some details on how the house itself has changed.

For more details and further events visit our Heritage Open Month events page.
