The Historyof 30 james street
The White 30 James Street is the home of the Titanic. Also known as Albion House or the White Star Building, it is a Grade II* listed building and was constructed between 1896 and 1898. The iconic building is positioned in the heart of Liverpool on the corner of James Street and The Strand, facing the city’s World Heritage Site, including the Pier Head and the Three Graces.
The building’s instantly recognisable facade is constructed from white Portland stone and red brick. Designed by architects Richard Norman Shaw and J. Francis Doyle, 30 James Street is the site where the Titanic was registered by the White Star Line shipping company on March 24th 1912.
The White Star Line revolutionised the shipping industry by creating the biggest, best and most luxurious passenger ships the world had ever seen. Alongside the Titanic, White Star Line also created world renowned liners the RMS Britannic and the RMS Olympic.
In 1934, 30 James Street closed as the head office of the merged Cunard White Star Line and remained untouched despite its history and reputation as one of the city’s most iconic structures.
Now lovingly and respectfully restored, the building retains many of its original architectural features, such as the 15 foot high Georgian windows. The hotel is set to be an incredible tribute to one of the grandest, most opulent passenger liners of all time.
