The Granby, Harrogate
The Granby, Harrogate
The Granby was once one of Harrogate's premier hotels, particularly in the late 18th and 19th centuries when the wells of High Harrogate were popular. The first inn on this site was the 'Sinking Ship' in the 17th century. This was rebuilt and renamed as the Granby in 1795, being named after the Marquis of Granby who had distinguished himself during the seven years war. The hotel was always popular with the nobility [see also the nearby Cedar Court hotel], and amongst those who stayed here was Clive of India. The hotel went into a gradual decline after WW2 as it was at the wrong end of town. After recent refurbishment it became apartments for the retired and a care home.
