DIARY DATE: The Titanic Hotel’s Wedding Show takes place this Sunday 4th March, 11am to 3pm, free entry, giving couples the opportunity to view the venue, meet the team and be inspired by a selection of local suppliers. Full details below.
Can you tell us a little about the history of the venue?
the titanic hotel say: Titanic Hotel and Rum Warehouse is part of the redevelopment of the historic Stanley Dock complex. It is located in what was the North Warehouse. The North Warehouse was built in 1846 and finished in 1854 and has been derelict for a number of years. Part of the North Warehouse was damaged in an air raid in World War II. The Rum Warehouse, which is attached to the North Warehouse and built in the 1950’s, has become a major new conference, banqueting and exhibition venue for 21st century Liverpool.
The luxury four-star hotel is set in what was the North Warehouse and boasts views over the Mersey estuary and Tobacco Warehouse, the biggest brick building in the world. Titanic Hotel set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was opened in 2014 after a £36 million renovation, which has seen the once industrious warehouse transformed into a luxury destination in Liverpool.
Steeped in heritage and style, the iconic Titanic Hotel Liverpool is impressive in every way.
How would you describe the look and feel of the venue?
The luxury 4-star hotel is one of the largest brick buildings in the world – complete with original exposed brick arches reflecting the hotel’s rich heritage and history. Titanic Hotel adjoins the incredible Rum Warehouse, that is the hotel’s primary wedding venue, and West Bay, the hotel’s newest separate event space contributing to Titanic’s entire offering.
The hotel has ensured that the interior design is contemporary luxury, yet also reflects its spectacular history and so it boasts original redbrick, steel pillars, vaulted ceilings, stone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Rum Warehouse and West Bay are stunning wedding venues that can be tailored to your special day.
Can you tell us what each of the ceremony and reception areas offer to couples?
Titanic Hotel has two impressive wedding and events spaces; the vast and versatile Rum Warehouse and the new intimate West Bay:
A beautifully renovated 1950’s warehouse, Rum Warehouse is the perfect banqueting space for your wedding reception and a stunning venue for your ceremony overlooking the Stanley Dock. In fact, it offers the perfect blank canvas for every style of wedding.

Due to the grand scale of the venue you can invite everyone from your nearest and dearest to your distant cousins without ever worrying about invitation lists.

West Bay is an exceptional new wedding venue reflective of our rich maritime heritage and restored warehouse design. Its stone floors, steel pillars and vaulted brick ceilings are perfectly in keeping with the distinctive style of the hotel and venue.
