History

Originally built around 1850 for the Earl of Cadogan as his private hunting lodge, The Wordsworth earned the function that we know today in 1874 following the Victorian tourist boom and the completion of the North Western railway in 1847. The Wordsworth has hosted European royalty, American presidents and numerous celebrities.
