NEW FOR 2020: Treasure, Tours and Tea

After another busy year at York Mansion House, on December 22nd this magnificent building will close its doors on 2019, and begin 2020 undergoing essential conservation work, getting the house and collections ready for reopening on January 25th.

While the house is under wraps for the New Year Clean, we are offering you the chance to see behind the scenes of this immense undertaking, joining an exclusive tour that will take you through the house, the conservation work, and the treasure being preserved.

Led by one of our expert members of staff, each tour will explore a different aspect of conservation. From delicate silver polishing, to the skilled work involved in bringing artwork back to life, the work will reveal stories and secrets of this remarkable home, and the precious objects within it. You will even get the opportunity to learn some techniques for yourself, seeing the evolution from historic methods of preservation, to modern day practises.

Following the tour, why not join us for tea and cake in the State Room, ending your visit in style.


Tours will run on Thursday 9th, Friday 10th, and Saturday 11th and Thursday 16th, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th January, from 2-3.30pm. All refreshments are included in the ticket price.


York Mansion House is fully accessible, with lift access and ramps throughout. The nature of the conservation work may mean that some access is restricted, so please call 01904 553663 prior to booking. Where possible, provision will be made to ensure everyone can attend.

Please let us know when booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Each tour will cover a different aspect of conservation, depending on the work that is taking place at the time.
