When the present Midland Hotel opened in 1933, how peaceful a stay the guests enjoyed is a matter for conjecture. The main railway line to the harbour passed right next to the hotel and for the last thirty years of its existence they had to put up with the noise generated by the neighbouring ship-breakers yard of T.W. Ward.
With it's 44 rooms, you can spot the hotel residents strolling along the public art lined prom. We also spotted a former lido next to the hotel.
We finally made it out of Manchester on the last bank holiday and headed to Morecambe. It took 1hr 20min door to door.
