GEORGE HOTEL, Market Street

GEORGE HOTEL
1 Market Street
The front entrance that exists today, didn't when it was a hotel. The entrances were
on either side, in Friargate and Market Street - see below.
The Friargate entrance. Although it is now a window,
the doorway entrance can still be seen.
Similarly in Market Street, the entrance is still obvious.
