Waterloo Hotel Clayton Square


Hi Rob

Would you happen to know where the Waterloo Hotel was situated? I have come across one reference to it being in Clayton Square and another to it being next door to the Lyceum. I’d also be interested in finding out when it was demolished.

  1. Hello Ron,

    On checking a 1900 Gores and a map of Liverpool of 1843 it would appear the Waterloo Hotel was situated at 2 to 8 Cases Street that leads on to Clayton Square. Gores lists it as Cases Street, Clayton Square although it was in Cases St. If correct the property was demolished to build Clayton Shopping Centre in the early 1990s.

    Part of the property may still exist as the Abbey Bank on the corner of Cases Street. I will upload some scan later today.

  2. Hi Rob

    Here's the proof! Came across it whilst having a nose around the English Heritage website. Taken by same photographer who did the Merchant Palaces stuff – Bedford Lemere.
