1. Royal Hotel (Welcome)
Leading directly onto the station concourse, this Italian Renaissance style building was completed in 1849. It began life as the Station Hotel, but was allowed to change its name to the Royal Station Hotel following Queen Victoria's stay here. Larkin enjoyed many a visit and would often lunch in its subterranean restaurant (no longer here), or call in for drinks after he had attended a city centre function. He also used the hotel's spacious lounge as a place in which to meet and talk to visitors.
