New improved Williamson!
One of Wirral’s hidden gems, the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum is minutes from the heart of Birkenhead, on the edge of the picturesque village of Oxton. It is centrally located and easily accessible by car and local transport, with free parking. Pop in for a visit 🙂
Funded through Birkenhead Borough Council by the philanthropists, John Williamson, a Director of the Cunard Steamship Company Ltd and his son Patrick Williamson, it opened to the public in 1928.
A truly splendid building, this elegant venue now provides space to display masterpieces, ceramics, and sculptures. Housing the largest public collection of Della Robbia pottery in the UK and home to some internationally important paintings, the gallery is a perfect venue for your event.
