Three uniquely themed barges moored in Albert Dock, Liverpool.
Get your sea legs ready for a completely unique break away on a themed Hollywood Barge in the centre of Liverpool.
Moored in Albert Dock, a stone's throw from the heart of the city, the Hollywood Barges have been individually styled around three themes - the Yellow Submarine, the Joker and the Titanic - meaning a stay in one these is completely unlike any other you will have experienced!
With the Cavern Club only 15 minutes away, the Yellow Submarine is the perfect billet for any Beatles fan on a Fab Four pilgrimage. Inside, psychedelic swirls greet you in the main living area, where gold discs and other Beatles memorabilia are proudly displayed. The designer furniture is chic and contemporary. Add a mod scooter into the mix - an actual prop from the film Quadrophenia - and the sixties vibe is firmly thrown into this 21st Century room.
Sleeping six, the Yellow Submarine's bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom really is something to experience however; based on the suite at Dubai's 7-star Burj Al Arab, this lavish room, complete with an ornate mirror on the ceiling, may make you forget you're in Liverpool at all! Luckily, the view from the panoramic window will remind you where you are in the morning.
Offering a similar level of luxury, the Joker Boat was built around the theme of a home for Batman's foe, before it was turned into 5-star accommodation. With purple, red and black colour themes running throughout the boat, coupled with sleek lines and finishes, it certainly suits the sneaky but suave Joker himself. Sleeping eight, the barge is large enough to feel roomy even at full capacity.
Enjoy a cocktail or two at the red-tiled breakfast bar while sitting back on stylish padded barstools, or relax on the black leather sofas to watch the HD flat screen TV. There is also a laptop available for guests, perfect for planning your nights out in this vibrant city.
Finally, The Titanic is a spectacle to behold. Complete with portholes and funnels, it towers over the Yellow Submarine; inside, lavish chandeliers, opulent mirrors and swag ceiling décor provide drama and luxury. Even the floor is based on that of the original First Class Lounge.
A couple of additions not found on the original ship are the 3D 52-inch TV and 12ft 3D projector TV, perfect for movie nights (guests should supply their own 3D glasses and films). The Titanic sleeps up to nine in three spacious bedrooms, and the Master Suite even has its own custom headboard, satin sheets and mirrored ceiling, all adding to the first class experience.
All barges come with fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities, and have Sky TV, DVD players and CD players. WiFi is free in 30-minute packages from Albert Dock.
With the centre of Liverpool less than a mile away, you're ideally situated for everything this fantastic city has to offer. Learn about its history on a guided tour or visit one of the many museums, from the Merseyside Maritime Museum to the International Slavery Museum. Football fans can tour Anfield or Goodison Park, and don't miss out on the fantastic arts scene in this City of Culture, with more galleries, theatres and comedy clubs than you can shake a stick at.
With so much on offer, you'll remember your trip to Liverpool for many years to come, but it really will be made all the more unforgettable with a stay on a truly unique Hollywood Barge.
