The Bar Convent

One of York’s hidden gems, the oldest convent in England offers the warmest of welcomes.

The Bar Convent opened as a Catholic girls’ school in 1686, at a time when the faith was still banned in England. Our interactive exhibition tells of the convent’s long history. You can also visit our stunning 250-year-old secret chapel and enjoy the peace of our walled garden, an oasis in the heart of York.
