Liverpool may be a city at the forefront of industry and the cutting edge of culture, but it's also a place with a rich and interesting past. As one of the country's first and most important trading ports, Liverpool became a cultural melting pot early on in its life. That diversity has brought about a remarkable past, much of which is still evident in the modern city. History buffs will marvel at the impressive array of historic hotels available in and around the city centre of Liverpool.
A Nod to Liverpool's Maritime Past
Sitting on the banks of the River Mersey, Liverpool has always been an important trading port and port-of-call for international travel. Undoubtedly the most famous ship ever to register in Liverpool was the RMS Titanic.
The Titanic Hotel enjoys a suitable location, right on the waterside in the heart of Liverpool. The hotel's facilities are as splendid and opulent at those on-board the RMS Titanic. Guests can relax in the spa and indoor pool, or get to work in the extensive conference space.
A Cultural History
Perhaps the most significant moment in the history of Liverpool came relatively recently, in 1960, when the pop group The Beatles was founded. The band went on to become the biggest artists the world had ever seen, and paved the way for Liverpool to develop into one of Europe's leading cities of culture.
There are a number of hotels in Liverpool themed around this famous group. Dedicated fans will be keen to visit The Cavern and The Beatles Story, both of which are surrounded by numerous fantastic places to stay.
Stunning Period Buildings
Much of Liverpool's history is still visible walking around town. One of the most interesting aspects of the city is actually its architecture, which really tells a story. Thankfully, many of the city's most beautiful period properties have been converted into hotels.
The Nadler Hotel occupies a stunning building, which captures the spirit of Liverpool's industrial past. The period property was originally a warehouse and also served as a printworks in the 19th Century. Today, it's a luxurious hotel, finished to a high standard.
