Former location of Clarence Hotel, Clarence Court (4). (c) Alan Godfrey Maps .
Before the Arndale and the redevelopment of both sides of Market Street, the Manchester Borough Court Houses straddled Spring Gardens and Brown Street on the left as you go down Market Street. Around the Courts were four pubs. Off Brown Street, parallel to Market Street was Clarence Court down which was accessed the Clarence Hotel . The Clarence faced onto Spring Gardens but had no entrance off it.
