Tranby, formally Hull Collegiate School - Tranby Lane - Hull - HU10 7EH
Tranby Croft was built in 1876 for the Hull ship owner Arthur Wilson. Constructed in yellow brick and featuring a high tower at one corner for views across the Humber, no expense was spared on the lavish interior, from its delicately stuccoed ceilings to sumptuous wood carvings, the building is an attempt to personify wealth and prestige with Wilson's initials prominent in many of the features. You will also see the room where the Baccarat Scandal of 1890 took place, a scandal which intimately involved the Prince of Wales and which rocked late Victorian society.
Explore the former home of Mary and Arthur Wilson, Tranby Croft in Anlaby. Now the setting for Hull Collegiate School, one of the area's leading independant schools. The house has a wealth of history and tales to tell including the Royal Baccarat scandal.
