The Empress Hotel
The Empress Hotel
These days the Empress, which stands on the 'island' of buildings that form Church Square, is a town pub and eating place, but in the past it was one of the hotels of High Harrogate. In 1860 it appears to have been a single storey inn known as the 'Bay Horse', but later in the 19th century it was rebuilt as a 3 storey hotel - probably too late to cash in on the popularity of St John's Well. The hotel was largely rebuilt in the 1960's losing one and a half storeys, gaining some mock Georgian features, and catering more for the pub trade.
