Standing close to the railway station on Lime Street, the world famous Adelphi Hotel was, in its day “The Place to Stay” in Liverpool for the great and good passing through the port. The original hotel was opened in 1826, and rebuilt in 1912 boasting solid marble walls in many of the bedrooms, a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and full central heating, making it one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe. The Sefton Suite is said to be an exact replica of the First Class Smoking Lounge of the Titanic. And it has been claimed that the panelling came from the Titanic’s sister ship, the Olympic.
Now known as the Britannia Adelphi, the hotel has undergone extensive restoration to bring it back to its former glory.
