University Arms Hotel
Originally open in 1834, this historic hotel enjoyed an eagerly awaited relaunch in the summer of 2018 following a major £80 million refurbishment.
Overlooking Parker’s Piece, the aim was to create something with timeless appeal in keeping with the rest of this historic city where stone is such an important feature. Therefore, we were thrilled to have contributed more than 500 tonnes of individually selected blocks of our Clipsham limestone, each weighing between five and 10 tonnes, as specified by the architects. Best use was made of the existing architecture, retaining features that give this iconic hotel its enduring character.
