Private Hire

Private Hire

For almost 300 years, the Mansion House has existed to showcase the best of York. We invite you to share our home with your guests, exploring the endless possibilities within. From product launches and fashion shows, to private dinners and parties, speak to us to bring your ideas to life.

Following extensive restoration, the house reopened in 2018 to welcome all to experience the grandeur of a mayoral occasion; hosting and organising extravagant dining experiences and intimate occasions for individuals and organisations. With the flexibility to choose your own space, layouts, and catering team, you can build an event to suit your exact requirements, taste and personality.

The Mansion House provides elegance and affordability in an ideal location right in the centre of York. We work with specially selected catering partners who can help you to create an afternoon tea, canapé and drinks reception, intimate supper, or extravagant banquet – whatever you have in mind.
