Past the grandeur of the prominent green doors and beautiful facade lies an inspiring, interactive environment where you can experience the story of York’s past and present. See how every Lord Mayor from the middle ages to the present day has danced, dined and entertained.
The York Mansion House is the earliest purpose built house for a Lord Mayor still in existence and predates the Mansion House in London by at least twenty years. The home was built as a place for the Lord Mayor to entertain visitors to the city and to house York’s wonderful civic collections.
Standing in the heart of our vibrant city, the Mansion House has been home to the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of York since 1732 and is still in use today.
The magnificent state room provides a spectacular setting for drinks receptions, lavish dinners, award ceremonies and so much more for up to 80 guests seated or 100 guests standing. The house also offers the use of our Dinning room for up to 24 seated or 80 standing and the charming drawing room room for up to 10 seated which offer a more intimate guest experience.
Your guests won't fail to be charmed by the house's mix of Georgian period features and a faultless service.
