Morritt Arms Hotel


The Morritt Arms Hotel in Greta Bridge is a former coaching inn, built in the 18th century. At that time Greta Bridge was the second overnight stop for the London-Carlisle coach. In 1839, Charles Dickens stayed at the hotel whilst researching for his novel Nicholas Nickleby. The hotel is a Grade II listed building on the National Heritage List for England.
