Latest government update on the reopening of the Village

Like so many of our lovely fellow museums and heritage attractions, we’re coming to terms with the latest announcements.

Following the government’s latest instruction for a nationwide lockdown, we’re sad to say our plans to fully reopen will have to be delayed. The restrictions are expected to remain in place for at least a four-week period, until Wednesday 2 December 2020.

We know a second lockdown will help slow down the spread of this terrible virus and of course, we will continue to play our part in keeping our visitors, residents, staff and volunteers safe during this time. This said, we also know it’s going to be tough on people so as ever we will make sure that the 130 acres of our amazing village will bring visitors a safe place to escape for their outdoor activities within the safety of their own bubbles.

We were only days away from launching a new offer ‘The Port Sunlight Experience’. We’ve been busy behind the scenes making improvements, with perhaps the most exciting news being the introduction of our brand-new interactive experience, SoapWorks located in the village’s historic school room The Lyceum.  Designed to encourage more children to engage with the STEM subjects, and thanks to a grant from AIM Biffa Award through their History Makers scheme, kids will have fun learning about the science of soap and its life-saving properties.

Thank you for everyone’s continued support. We’ll keep you updated with all our news on our social media channels so make sure to follow. We’re so excited to share it all with you… we promise we’ll be worth the wait!
