York Mansion House: Events and Meetings Venue

Book Tickets Online


York Mansion House is a spectacular 17th-century house situated in the centre of historic York. Built in 1732, it is the oldest purpose-built home for a Lord Mayor in the country, acting as the civic and social heart of the north for almost 300 years. In its rich and lavish history, the Mansion House has played host to royalty, been home to some of York's most infamous figures, and thrown raucous, decadent parties.

Across four floors, the Mansion House is a celebration of York. From the perfectly recreated Georgian kitchens below stairs, to the brand new galleries on the top floor, displaying one of the largest collections of civic silver in the country, this is an entirely unique space, and home. Climbing the grad staircase, discover the grandeur of the State Room, the intimacy of the Drawing Room, and the beautiful formaility of the Dining Room.

The whole house is available to hire, and provides the most spectacular backdrop to any event. Show your clients the best York has to offer with a boardroom meeting in the Dining Room, or conference in the State Room; host your own celebration and spill out throughout the house; or take advantage of the completely unique spaces, and seal your commitment with a legal ceremony anywhere in the house.

There is so much to experience and discover at York Mansion House. Find out more here, and talk to us today and let us help us bring your next event to life.
