Russell Hotel - Titanic Dining Room

I have wanted to go in and look at the Russell Hotel since I first discovered that Charles Fitzroy Doll, who designed the hotel in 1898, also designed the Titanic's Ballroom.

The exterior of the Hotel is covered in Doulton's 'The au Lait' terracotta tiles, and the interior is covered with amazing limestone cladding.

The claddings are described in this pdf.  https://www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucfbrxs/Homepage/walks/RussellHotelFoyer.pdf

On the second floor is a dragon - called Lucky George as his pair sank with the Titanic.
