About Us

York Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of York, positioned at the heart of city society and civic life for almost 300 years.

A masterpiece of 18th century architecture and a celebration of the city it inhabits, York Mansion House and its infamous residents have a colourful history, filled with scandal, decadence and outlandish feasting. Following extensive restoration, in 2018 the house opened to the public for the first time, allowing all to experience this extravagant mayoral life, and take an interactive walk through York’s Georgian past.

You will visit all four floors of this remarkable building. Following the sweeping staircase through the house, you will bypass the intimate Drawing Room flooded with light, galleries housing a the largest collection of civic silver outside London, and shadowy rooms filled with robes of Lord Mayors past and present. Moving downstairs, discover the working, historically recreated Georgian kitchen, complete with winding passages of pantries and store-cupboards.

From tours taking behind-the-scenes of the conservation work, to a deep dive into our uniquely delicious feasting heritage, we have a fantastic programme of events throughout the year. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know what’s coming next.

You can download our app to be taken on an interactive journey through the secrets of the Mansion House, or we have our lovely volunteers who are happy to share their knowledge of the house, no pre booking required.

We can’t wait to welcome you to York Mansion House: the heart of scandalous city society for 300 years.
