IN PICTURES: Scarborough's glorious Pavilion Hotel - and the 'monstrosity' that replaced it
We asked you which Scarborough building should be demolished because of its ugliness ... and, predictably, there was a clear "winner".
Until 1973, the glorious Pavilion Hotel occupied a huge site at the corner of Westborough and Valley Bridge Parade. In that year, the five-storey hotel was demolished, to be replaced by the brutalist concrete Pavilion House, which houses offices with shops on the ground floor. Many people have an intense dislike of that building, variously described as a "carbuncle" or a "monstrosity". Take a look at these before and after photos, and also others of the "top of town" ... the top of Westborough (although the road does continue beyond the railway station, to become Falsgrave Road).
