Tate Liverpool

When Tate first opened its doors to the public in 1897 it had just one site, displaying a small collection of British artworks. Today Tate has four major sites and the national collection of British art from 1500 to the present day and international modern and contemporary art, which includes nearly 70,000 artworks. A number of new developments are planned for Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Tate St Ives to ensure the galleries continue to expand.

Claremont Farm

The Pimbleys are a family of farmers, growing and selling our own fruit and vegetables here on the Wirral since 1906. We champion local produce by putting our favourites in the farm shop and we celebrate it during our much-loved food and drink festivals. We reconnect children with their food, how it’s grown and what it tastes like through our Welly Walks and we open our fields for families to come pick their very own.

Now you can visit our new farm shop, butchers’ counter and cafe in the heart of the Wirral countryside to taste and experience everything Claremont Farm has to offer.

It’s taken us 10 years to create the alternative shopping and eating destination you see today, a melting pot for local produce, seasonal foods and family activities. In days gone by our sense of culture and community used to centre around the enjoyment of food and the market place, and this is what we strive to create at Claremont.

National Wildflower Centre

National Wildflower Centre

The National Wildflower Centre is a seasonal eco-visitor attraction in Knowsley – You’ll find us 5 miles (8 km) from Liverpool city centre. We showcase our natural wildflower heritage and inspire you to create new wildflower landscapes wherever you live. Our seasonal nature displays and creative community projects raise awareness about the importance of wildflowers, and encourage people to learn about creative conservation.

All the money we raise at the Centre is put back into our creative conservation founding charity Landlife. We particularly work with people with poor access in their communities to our natural environment. Just by visiting us, you can be sure you are making a valuable contribution. We are working in close partnership with Knowsley Council ‘The Wildflower Borough’, making new landscapes for communities.

Landlife’s trading enterprise Landlife Wildflowers also grows and sells native wildflower seeds, grown on its own farm. To buy online visit Landlife Wildflowers. All proceeds from the sale of goods online also support creative conservation.

We’re a creative bunch of people – And welcoming with it! Our Centre is a mix of refurbished old buildings and new architecture that look back to our conservation past – and project positive action for now and into the future. We have a lovely Cornflower Cafe, Shop and Conference venue too, amongst historical courtyards and a former walled garden space with seasonal displays.
