The Red Lion Hotel on Milford Street is possibly the longest-running purpose-built hotel in the UK (Archive LinkExternal link archived from hotel website). It was built in the twelfth or thirteenth century to provide lodgings for the draughtsmen working on the Cathedral. Originally named the White Bear Inn, its name was changed to the “Red Lion and Cross Keys”, which was subsequently shortened to “The Red Lion” during the eighteenth century.

The Red Lion is a Grade II listed building (List entry Number: 1242887 LinkExternal link Historic England).
