Waterloo Heritage Trail

About

The aim of a heritage trail is to promote an awareness of the architectural and historical development of the urban environment. This trail focuses on the Northwest town of Waterloo and the atmosphere and rich variety of building styles which make up its unique character.

Situated on the coast of the river Mersey about five miles to the north of Liverpool, Waterloo is one of that great city's many suburbs. Nowadays Waterloo is very much an urban conservation area, but just over two centuries ago things looked very different.

In the Georgian era the land here was mainly an expanse of rough pasture upon which local farmers grazed their cattle. However an extensive shoreline, good sea air and fine nautical views provided the natural ingredients necessary for the town’s urban transformation. These attractions led to the building in 1815 of a hotel along with six cottages. Opening the following year, the guesthouse was named the Royal Waterloo Hotel in commemoration of the triumphant battle of Waterloo. It is now the Royal Hotel on Marine Terrace.
