Information

Liberal politician Richard Bulkeley Williams Bulkeley (1801-1875) of Baron Hill, 10th Baronet Williams-Bulkeley of Penrhyn, built the Bulkeley Hotel in Beaumaris for a royal visit to the town in 1832 by the then Princess Victoria. He engaged architects Joseph Aloysius Hansom (1803-1882) – who later invented the Hansom safety cab – and Edward Welch (1806-1868) and construction commenced in 1829. Hansom, from York, and Welch, from Flintshire, had formed an architectural partnership in 1828 and at the time were also engaged on the renovation of Bodelwyddan Castle (1830-1832). Construction of the three-storey, neo-classical Bulkeley Hotel was completed in 1831. It was altered by Bangor architect Peter Shearson Gregory (b 1862) around 1899 and extended in the 1930s by Colwyn Bay architect Sidney Colwyn Foulkes (1884-1971). The hotel is a Grade I listed building.
