This grand historic building designed the same architect as the Houses of Parliament, Thomas Allom, was built in 1865 as the Great Eastern Railway Hotel. In both World Wars it served as a military hospital and from 1951 as a town hall. It was later converted to private flats. This flat is has a wonderful fresh modern feel and boasts 12 foot high ceilings. It's in the prime location for exploring Harwich and the local area, with local boat trips on your doorstep as well as ferries to Holland....This grand historic building designed the same architect as the Houses of Parliament, Thomas Allom, was built in 1865 as the Great Eastern Railway Hotel.
