Collecting Seymour stories

As part of our centenary celebrations, we are going through the extensive Seymour Hotels and Seymour family archive. As you can imagine, we are discovering hundreds of interesting photos, artefacts and stories from the past century! Over the course of the year, we'll be sharing some selected photos and stories here on the website.

Share your stories

But of course, our photos and memories are just a part of the story. The Seymour family are hugely outnumbered by the thousands of wonderful staff and guests who have worked alongside us and stayed with us over the past 100 years. We would love to hear from you - our extended family of friends, customers and colleagues - with your own memories, photos and stories. You can share them with us here, and we will be delighted to publish them on this website, with your approval.

Social media

We will also have a Facebook page and Instagram account dedicated to our centenary celebrations (what would George & Ada have thought of that 100 years ago!?). We will be sharing stories and highlights from our archive there throughout 2020, and welcome anyone who would like to join us there to comment and contribute their own memories and stories.
