Exhibition Hotel, No. 19, was built in the late 18th century as a fairly large house, which was occupied in the last decade of the century by James Fenton and after 1800 by Lady Royds (Rate Books); it had certainly become a hotel by 1872 (Benson, iii, 166) and the name probably commemorates the Fine Art and Industrial Exhibition of 1866. The street front has been remodelled in modern times but its earlier state can be seen in watercolours by R. Dighton (c. 1815) and C. Dillon (c. 1840) (Evelyn Collection, YCL); the interior has been altered.

The house is of three storeys with attics with a brick gable to the rear above storeys defined by brick bands. The interior has been stripped of original fittings but the main lines of the plan can be recognised; the entrance was to one side, leading to a staircase placed transversely in the middle of the house, and at the back two rooms flanked a central passage.
