1. Harrison Spinks Thornton British Wool Emperor Mattress
The Harrison Spinks Thornton British Wool Mattress tops our Best Emperor Bed Picks. Harrison Spinks bed makers have been around for more than 178 years with a reputation for quality mattresses. This handmade mattress may very well be included in our Best Luxury Mattress list.
What sets this mattress apart from the rest, is that you can choose from 3 different types of types; single tension, dual tension and zip & link style. You can also choose your tension preference from gentle, medium, firm and extra firm for each style you choose. If you are looking for a mattress for you and your partner we would recommend the dual tension or zip & link style as with these options you can each choose your tension firmness for your side of the bed.
This exclusively made mattress by Harrison Spinks for Feather & Black is filled with cotton, hempure and 100% British wool. This Emperor mattress also contains 5,000 revolution pocket springs made from British steel. Revolution pocket springs are made up of a larger outer spring providing comfort for lighter parts of your body and an inner smaller spring to support the heavier parts. Edge support is important especially for emperor size mattresses that is why there are 2 rows of hand-sewn side stitching to support the outer perimeters of the mattress.
This Emperor size bed/mattress includes a 100-night trial* and also comes with a 7-year guarantee and free delivery for orders over £2,000.
2. OTTY Hybrid Emperor Mattress
Included in our Best Emperor mattresses list is a budget option from the NBF Small Retailer of the Year OTTY.
The OTTY emperor is a Hybrid mattress, meaning it is an infusion of pocket springs and foams. This particular model includes; memory foam, support foam and 2,000 pocket springs. Giving the overall mattress a medium-firm feel, we rated it about a 7/10 with 10 being the firmest. OTTY also included an airflow side support foam to reduce edge collapse although this does help it may not be as supportive as the other pocket sprung emperor mattresses.
This budget emperor mattress not only is easier on the pockets but is also very practical. The thick-knit cover can be quickly removed and popped into the wash at up to 40 degrees, making spills that much easier to deal with.
Finally, OTTY provides a 100-night trial with all their mattresses, that means you can try out the mattress in your home and if you are not 100% satisfied with it they will collect it and offer a full refund. This emperor mattress also comes with a 10-year guarantee and free delivery.

The emperor size bed/mattress is available only in firm at 200x200x28 cm. Its filling is comprised of British wool to help with temperature regulation as well as adding comfort. Wool is one of the best heat regulators, another great benefit is that it is naturally hypoallergenic making it acceptable for those prone to allergies. The support comes from the 2,000 dual-layer pocket springs which are individually encased allowing them to move independents for better body contouring.
Soak & Sleep have included 16 air side air vents to allow for air circulation to keep the bed fresh. This emperor mattress is made here in the UK and is NBF accredited.

Emperor Mattress and Bed Sizes
Officially a standard UK size emperor mattress is 215 cm wide and 215 cm long or 7 foot by 7 foot. However, there are some variations that are slightly smaller or larger such as the so-called "small emperor" which is 200x200 cm and some larger models about 220x220 cm (just over 7 foot).
We would highly recommend you to actually bring out the good old tape measure and find out exactly how large your Emperor size mattress and bed is, so you and the delivery company don't run into any unwanted surprises.
Emperor Bed Products

Emperor Mattress Protectors
Emperor size mattress protectors are not sold by many manufacturers but are a useful addition to have. It helps stop any spills or stains from getting to your mattress, saving you time, effort and potentially money from cleaning it. Mattress protectors also help to absorb perspiration and moisture as well as keep dust at bay from building up in your mattress.
Emperor Mattress Bed Sheets
If you need some bedsheets for your emperor bed, below we have found a range of emperor sheets that should fit your needs. There is a range of soft colours, kinds of cotton and styles. You will find that the sheets with higher thread counts will be more expensive because in theory, the higher the thread count the higher the quality.

Emperor Mattress Duvets
Duvets come in different togs (the higher the tog the warmer it is). Generally, a tog of 2.7 - 7 is perfect for spring and summer and a tog of around 10.5 - 13.5 is well suited for autumn and winter. Depending on what you needing below is a complete range of emperor size duvets for your mattress.
