Refuge Assurance Building


Refuge Assurance Building review Rate it

Designed by Alfred Waterhouse for the Refuge Assurance Company, this late-19th-century Grade II-listed building is a landmark in Manchester, with its distinctive red brickwork and 217ft (66m) clock tower. It was converted to a hotel in the mid 1990s and, after a £7 million refurbishment in 2005, now houses the Palace Hotel.
