Unlock the splendour within York’s finest eighteenth-century townhouse

Set in the heart of York, Fairfax House reveals the domestic interiors in which these Georgians would have walked, the tastes and fashions of the day for architecture, interior decoration, food and furnishings, as well as the customs and habits of York’s wealthy gentry and aristocracy. It was a place where the winter season could be enjoyed, and with it, all the entertainments and social engagements that this centre for ‘polite society’ had to offer. A beautiful collection of furniture brings the house alive and creates a special feeling of warmth. It evokes a life once lived in comfort and grandeur, vividly recalling a lost world of townhouse-living in the 1760s. Families can also meet Gregory, The Townhouse Mouse, and enjoy his award-winning children’s trail and quest.
