Fodor's Review

This handsome 19th-century mansion next to Liverpool John Moore's University contains the extraordinary art collection amassed by shipping magnate George Holt (1825–96). Paintings on display include works by J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Gainsborough, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Joshua Reynolds. The interior of the building itself is an immaculately maintained example of high Victorian domestic style. Permanent displays include a collection of historic children's toys and women's fashion from the 18th century to the present day. Sudley House is about 5 miles southeast of the city center. To drive, take the A5036 along the river heading south; alternatively, Bus No. 61 to Elmswood Road, 80 or 80A to Rose Lane, or 82 to Aigburth Road.
