its now a regular haunt – the Titanic hotel on its great dockside location – it was Elise’s birthday and her favourite choice of present. so this week, i treated my friend elise for her birthday to a couple of nights in her favourite hotel – the titanic in liverpool! the roomiest, coolest hotel that i have ever been to in the UK. its a short taxi ride from the tate gallery, but situated right on the docks and housed in a converted warehouse – one of many that line the once busy docks of liverpool. you can always find a deal, check their website for advanced offers – the spa is a heavenly treat too. there is an amazing exhibition on at the moment of 2 of my favourite artists, Egon Sc hiele and Francesca Woodman.
take a stop to eat at ‘the quarter’ in the beautiful georgian area around hope street, whilst you walk the beautiful Georgian houses, wondering how chic and upmarket Liverpool must have been in the 18C. and then a must see stop are the 2 opposing cathedrals – both architecturally amazing in their own right. if you have time, take the 15 min drive to Crosby beach to see ‘another place’ by Antony Gormley – a series of life size cast iron figures set along the beach seemingly entering the sea.
