Come and unlock the splendour within York’s finest eighteenth-century townhouse.

Unlock the splendour within one of England’s finest Georgian townhouses and let Fairfax House transport you to the glory days of city-living in eighteenth century York. Originally the winter home of Viscount Fairfax and his daughter Anne, Fairfax house’s richly decorated interiors, exceptional collection of furniture and magnificent stucco ceilings make it a masterpiece of Georgian design and architecture. 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.
