Explore four fascinating floors of York Mansion House, dressed in festive finery from 15 November to 23 December.
Let York Mansion House take you back 300 years, where the traditions we still see today were born, borrowed and celebrated… and some forgotten. Past the grandeur of the prominent green doors lies a home built for entertaining royalty. As the oldest purpose-built home for a Lord Mayor in the country, the stories of scandal and frivolity are still being told, and York Mansion House invites you to discover them.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of York streets and witness a weird and wonderful delicacy during an historic cooking demonstration. Time for a fabulous ball, better learn the language of the fan to prepare!
- 11.30am: Georgian cooking demonstration
- 2.30pm: Language of the Fan
These events are included in the price of admission, and your ticket lasts all day so you can participate in both activities!
The hobs are also back in full force for a new trail for little ones!
Please note York Mansion House is open Wednesday to Saturday, and there is no need to pre-book. It's open on Sundays for tours as usual.
