Following the latest national lockdown announcement of January 5th 2021, York Mansion House remains closed for until further notice.

We will be updating these pages and our social media with any changes, and we hope to welcome you back soon.


As York’s most exclusive address, there is no shortage of scandal, decadence and frivolity to be discovered at the Mansion House.

We’ve been working to completely transform the Mansion House experience, in response to the changing government guidelines, and are now ready to invite you back into the heart of York society.

From Wednesday to Sunday, we have a number of time slots available for individual households or bubbles to book and explore the house on a self-guided visit. Pick up a printed map, or download our free app for a truly immersive experience, and enjoy taking a walk in the footsteps of the Lord Mayors, their families and staff, who have called the house home for almost 300 years.

With plenty to keep all ages entertained, everyone is welcome.



It couldn't be simpler! Follow the link to book your time slot, and pay on the door when you arrive.
