This 312 bedroom establishment is a grand hotel in every sense of the word. The Midland is situated on Peter Street in Manchester city centre, and was built by Charles Trubshaw for the Midland Railway Company in 1898-1903. Today it is a Grade II listed building and has always been a favourite with celebrities, with the likes of Paul McCartney, The Spice Girls, The Beckhams, George Best, Tom Jones, Luciano Pavarotti, Mike Tyson, Jennifer Lopez, Prince Edward and Tony Blair all staying at this iconic hotel. Famously, the Beatles were once turned away from the French restaurant for being inappropriately dressed.
The Midland is perhaps most celebrated for being the meeting place of Charles Stewart Rolls and Frederick Henry Royce, which lead to the formation of Rolls-Royce Limited.
The Midland is available to hire as a wedding venue and also for other special occasions.
