The Grand Hotel : Scarborough

The Grand Hotel overlooks Scarborough's South Sea and is built around an interesting concept; it is one of Scarborough's most recognizable landmarks and is a brilliant example of Victorian architecture.

The Grand Hotel was designed by architect Cuthbert Brodrick, (who also designed Leeds Town Hall and Corn Exchange) and was built between 1862-1867 and was one of the first and largest purpose built hotels in Europe.

The design was based on the concept of time with four towers to represent the four sessions, twelve floors to represent the twelve seasons, fifty-two chimneys to represent the weeks, and 365 bedrooms for each day of the year.

The hotel was also built in the shape of a ‘V’ in honour of Queen Victoria and is a key example in Victorian Architecture. Although the hotel does not offer the same grandeur as when it was built, it is still a remarkable building on Scarborough’s seafront.
