Hobs are little household faeries (old English) that have been haunting Yorkshire homes for centuries. There have been hobs in the Mansion House since it was built in 1725! They are extremely friendly and like to help with the cleaning and the chores... but they also have a mischievous side!

Join us at York Mansion House to help find our little friends and complete some fun Hob-stacles! The Hob Trail is included in admission.
