The Grand Hotel, overlooking Scarborough's South Bay, is a well-known nineteenth-century landmark in this English seaside town. The hotel, designed by the Hull architect, Cuthbert Brodrick, and when completed in
1867, was one of the largest hotels in the world, as well as one of the first giant purpose-built hotels in Europe. The hotel's distinctive yellow brickwork was made locally in Hunmanby, and 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.
On May 24th 1849, Anne and Charlotte Bronte left their home in Haworth for a holiday in Scarborough. They stayed in the cottages which stood on the site of the present Grand Hotel. Anne was already seriously ill with consumption and died on the 28th and was buried in St Mary's churchyard.
Visitors have commented on seeing ghostly figures, some have become so frightened after witnessing small items flying across the room, pictures falling from walls, loud knocking on doors, with no one to be seen in the corridor on outside. Loud screams, singing and laughter are also heard. Numerous apparitions have been seen, none more so than a lady wearing a long red dress. Could this be the spirit of Anne Bronte?
