Did you know that the first schools for girls to offer the same education as boys in this country were established by our religious order? All while having to hide their true identity because Catholicism was illegal!

Using QR codes throughout the exhibition, you are invited to discover more about the trailblazing women of the Bar Convent story whose bravery and determination made history locally, nationally and around the world.

As part of ‘York Trailblazers’ citywide sculpture trail.

Open every day except Sundays.

The Bar Convent Opening Hours

Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm with last admissions at 4pm. Closed on Bank Holidays and some dates over Easter and Christmas - please see our website for details.
