Over 150 years of Yorkshire House, home of Ten Square
Yorkshire House was built in 1862, and pre-dates the opening of Belfast City Hall in 1906, thus making it the same vintage as the Ulster Hall in Bedford Street. It has three storeys and nine bay frontages which overlook both Donegall Square and Linenhall Street. The building's exterior features wonderfully carved portholes, featuring the famous & historical reliefs of George Washington, Isaac Newton, Michelangelo and William Shakespeare amongst others.
The hotel stands on the ground of what was once a row of Georgian houses where the famous physician, poet, educationalist Dr. William Drennan lived in the early 1800s (whose sister had already founded the Maternity Hospital on the city square several years before, and which was the forerunner of the current Royal Maternity Hospital).
The structure existed for many years as a Victorian linen warehouse and also served as the General Post Office for a period of time. Fast forward many years, Yorkshire House's current incarnation as Ten Square Hotel began at the turn of the millennium. Ten Square Today
