Owner description: Step back in time when you visit this 18th-century town house, one of the finest examples of rococo decoration in England with its famous Terry collection of furniture and clocks.
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is one of the finest Georgian townhouses in England. The interior is furnished in 18th century grand style. There is a fully stocked kitchen with rabbits and game hanging on hooks -very realistic!

We enjoyed the tour, but there are other places equally good. Since we used the York pass, it was basically free. Allow 30 minutes, but don't expect anything too special. Still a good place though.

Have been to York several times but this was my first visit to Fairfax. Definitely worthwhile. Knowledgeable guides and an interesting background story.
