Facilities & Access

Our commitment to accessibility

PSVT are committed to providing access to its public buildings, facilities and gardens. There are limitations due to the physical constraints of listed buildings, registered landscapes and the gradients of slopes and pavements in the village. Many pavements and roads in the village are under the ownership of Wirral Council and will be identified in their Access Policy.

PSVT will make reasonable adjustments to adapt access to and within the residential properties in its care for disabled tenants or tenants with special needs. PSVT will complete this work in line with the Equality Act 2010, Part M of Building Regulations and with consideration of the significant character of the heritage assets in its care, which are protected by statutory listing and Conservation Area designation.

Port Sunlight Museum and the Edwardian Worker’s Cottage

Port Sunlight Museum has toilets, including an accessible toilet and baby changing facilities.

Port Sunlight Museum has level, step-free access. The Worker’s Cottage has one step at the entrance. Due to the nature of the property, the first floor is only accessible via a narrow staircase, however we can provide you or your guest with a tablet to enjoy a virtual tour of the Worker’s Cottage.

Only assistance dogs are allowed inside our attractions (Port Sunlight Museum and the Edwardian Workers Cottage), however dogs are very welcome outside in Port Sunlight and we have plenty of green spaces for you explore together. Please tidy up any dog waste using the bins provided around the village.

If you have any queries regarding accessibility, please email [email protected] or call 0151 644 6466.
