Midland Hotel Visit

30 WI members, suitably dressed to impress, joined the coach trip to the prestigious Midland Hotel in the centre of Manchester. We followed in the footsteps of many famous people, including Mr Rolls and Mr Royce, TV stars, sporting celebrities, politicians and royalty.
We split into 2 groups and had a fascinating tour of the inside and outside of this impressive Victorian building where our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides explained the importance of the history, location, architecture and ownership of this beautiful hotel. You could almost imagine arriving by steam train at the busy Central Station, now an exhibition centre, and just crossing the road to be greeted by the commissionaire, welcoming you at the impressive entrance of this grand building while your luggage was taken to your large suite where wine, flowers, chocolates and luxury awaited you . . .
We finished our visit with an Afternoon Tea in the Octagon room before returning to Whitley.  Many thanks to our organisers Ann, Lorna and Ann.
