Following increased concern around Covid-19, we've made the difficult decision to close the Mansion House for the foreseeable future. The situation will be monitored daily, and we hope to be welcoming you back soon.

Please keep following us on social media, and keep an eye on the website for the latest updates. The team will be hard at work behind the scenes to create some exclusive digital tours for you, and sign up to our newsletter for the latest information.

As we have for almost 300 years, we celebrate and support the people of York, and stand in solidarity with the UK and the rest of the world.


Welcome to York Mansion House, a Georgian architectural gem right in the heart of the city.

Drop in for a self-led tour of our beautiful gold and silver collections and wander through the glorious rooms of this living city house. Pick up one of our iPad guides, free with your admission ticket, which offer a wide range of stories from the point of view of the house occupants and staff through the years. Alternatively, our house stewards and volunteers are always happy to answer your queries. Cooking demonstrations take place Wednesday to Sunday at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

So, come find us and discover York's original house party.


Please be aware that we will be closed for a private event until 3pm Friday 6th March. We will be opening at 3pm until 7pm following the event.
