As a new year begins, escape the dark nights and be ushered into a world of Georgian elegance at York Mansion House. 

For three dates only, York’s most exclusive address is inviting you to discover the magic that comes with sundown, with a guided tour exploring the grandeur and extravagance of mayoral life. As the heart of city society for almost 300 years, you’ll find tales of spectacular feasts, infamous figures, and priceless objects waiting for you on this guided journey through mayoral life. 

We’ve worked hard to make the Mansion House a covid-secure space, and so each tour is open to a single household or bubble, with a minimum of two people per booking. Each tour is exclusive to you, with our expert guides leading you through the centuries, allowing you to enjoy the magic and beauty of the house. 

If you’ve ever wondered what’s behind the doors of this magnificent building, there is no better time to find out.
