WEEKEND IN LOVELY LIVERPOOL (1 of 3) – In loving memory of my great grandfathers in-law

The next couple of blog posts are going to be flashbacks. It finally turned out we went to Liverpool for the weekend. Really…??? Why Liverpool, of all the places? Well, Liverpool is full of undeniable history for our nation. To top it up, Liverpool also happens to have remarkably personal links with my husband and he wanted to share this with me. Mark’s great, grandfathers worked on the now called Britannia Adelphi Hotel. This was the hotel we stayed in over the weekend.


Going back in time, some of his forefathers even participated with the actual construction of the first hotel on the site around 1825. Mark felt he had to surprise me with something a bit nostalgic and dear to his heart. Taking it in was a bit overwhelming but felt surreal to be taken way back in time.


The Adelphi Hotel is situated right in the city centre of Liverpool. When it was first constructed, it was regarded as the most luxurious hotel. It served as the most popular hotel for wealthy passengers who used Liverpool port with different ocean liners. Famous guests included Frank Sinatra, Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Bob Dylan just to name a few. I was touched by the fact that we actually spent the weekend in one of the hotels that were built, by people who are actually blood-related to my husband. As a matter of fact, I could not believe it. I understand even generations that followed also worked at the Hotel.



Although a few things have changed, the amazing architectures remain ecstatic. The grand designs hold ancient richness in them. I was tempted to have a photo shoot around the place.


Amazing Deco


I really liked the golden man, although bigger would have been awesome. I always prefer them big, like VERY big…


The Adelphi Hotel is full of classical architectural elements inside out. I needed to carry some memories with me. And for me, photos are everlasting memories that last forever (especially with the now iCloud available…)

The pink marble pilasters dominated the whole building.


The chandelier ceiling beamed the hall.


One could play hide and seek behind huge Ionic columns. The deco had lovely details of the architect.


I’m kind-of-like obsessed with red lipstick. And there was this beautiful seate in the foyer. It kept saying “…Please do sit down…” Ha ha ha

I felt honoured to spend the weekend in Liverpool. I enjoyed every single moment of it. This I shall continue to reveal in a couple of blogs to come. I hope you also had lovely Easter holidays.
