30 James Street – Albion House

Jennifer

Designed by Richard Norman Shaw, No. 30 James Street, Albion House in Liverpool housed the offices of White Star Line Shipping Company until 1934. Situated on the corner of James Street and the Strand, this impressive eight-storey building has distinctive alternating bands of red brick and white Portland stone.

This stunning building is where the sinking of the Titanic was announced and is well worth a visit, especially as it’s now open as a Titanic themed hotel known as 30 James Street.
