Long distance view across the bay.

A large hotel in Scarborough, England, overlooking the town's South Bay.
The hotel was designed by the Hull architect Cuthbert Brodrick, and completed in 1867. It was at the time one of the largest hotels in the world.
The building is designed around the theme of time: four towers to represent the seasons, 12 floors for the months of the year, 52 chimneys symbolise the weeks, and originally there were 365 bedrooms, one for each day of the year. The hotel itself is in the shape of a 'V' in honour of Queen Victoria.
Originally used by wealthy clients in Victorian times it now caters more for the budget end of the market, being popular with coach trips.
It is a Grade II* listed building and owned by Britannia Hotels who have invested in a 7 million refurbishment.
