Community hub

Bridge Cottage is Port Sunlight’s community hub: a home for events, meetings, clubs, chat, and plenty of tea and cake. This is a place where local residents and the wider community can feel at home, and get to know one another.

Holding regular coffee mornings, baby and toddler sessions, art classes, games groups and much more. With flexible meeting space, a well-equipped craft studio, a garden with wheelchair access, and a stunning Edwardian style study which is now a vintage shop, there is room for everyone.

The house has a rich history and story to tell in every room, it’s a desirable venue for talks, tours and heritage events. Lord Leverhulme, the founder of Port Sunlight, was Bridge Cottage’s very first occupant. The house attracts visitors from across the world, and has been used as a film location many times.

The hub is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but work continues behind the scenes to provide support for residents and maintain regular contact. To find out how to support its wide-ranging community engagement programme, whether through volunteering or fundraising initiatives, contact our Community Engagement Officer Claire on or visit the hub’s dedicated website
