The Prince of Wales Hotel in Southport is a beautiful reminder of Britain’s Victorian Heritage, an elegant building with landscaped gardens. Throughout the reception, lounge area and bedrooms, the decoration has been kept intact, in keeping with the elegant and stylish character of the building.”

A bit about the hotel. 1876-7 The Prince of Wales Hotel, designed by E. Kenrick and built in 1876-7 to replace the 1805 Union Inn, was built in a domestic gothic style. This enormous structure, with its intricate boundary wall and gate piers, as well as its majesty, continues to astound today. It is considered one of Southport's premier hotels and has been listed as a grade II* listed building since 1987. The hotel originally had 120 rooms but this number has now more than doubled. Today, there are about 320 guest rooms and 22 suites available. The Prince of Wales also has 10 dining options including a steak restaurant, seafood restaurant, Italian restaurant, French restaurant, Chinese restaurant, Mexican restaurant, bakery, coffee shop, and bar. There's always something going on at the hotel so you won't ever get bored of what they have to offer!

In addition to being a hotel, The Prince of Wales can also be rented out for functions or events. They have great facilities such as a large function room that can accommodate up to 200 people and a garden area that can be used for weddings or parties.

The hotel has three function suites all with ornate gold carvings and superb Victorian features. One of our 'one of a kind' suites is our Ballroom. The Ballroom has a wrap round balcony and large dance floor. The room also boasts a large glass ceiling with a unique chandelier, this is perfect for first dance shots. We have our Windsor Suite which also has a dance floor and glass ceiling and our International Suite perfect for intimate gatherings. We also have our lawn which is perfect for photos for bride and groom or group shots. The lawn is widely used for arrival or reception drinks during the day with outside music and fairy lights for at night.

The Prince of Wales hotel sits on Southport’s historic Lord Street, Lord Street dates from the 1820s when the joint Lords of the Manor, the Bold-Houghton and Fleetwood-Hesketh families, laid out a spacious street and was first called Lords’ Street after the founding families. Lord Street is famously believed to be one of the first boulevards in the world. The young exiled Prince Louis Napoleon took lodgings just off Lord Street for a season in 1838. Much later, when he had become Emperor Napoleon III of France, he ordered his architect to rebuild the capital.The great boulevards which traverse Paris today are believed to have originated from the Emperor’s memories of Lord Street – tree-lined boulevards, wide pavements and shops on the west side.
