Only open for guided tours thu-sat and well worth doing. Very knowledgeable guides who tell all about the history of the house, its contents and about the Mayors.

The Mansion House is where the Lord Mayor of York lives and conducts his civic duties.
We only went here as we had some time to kill but were pleased we went. I think you can only go on a guided tour 3 times a day.
Our guide was brilliant and really brought the place alive with interesting stories of previous Lord Mayors and the house and furnishings

The guide was an ex-mayor and very informative.

The building is beautiful and has an interesting history.

Very reasonable to get in and well worth a look.
