One of the finest eighteenth-century townhouses in England, Fairfax House transports you to the world of Georgian Britain.
Originally the winter home of Anne Fairfax and her father – Charles Gregory, 9th Viscount Fairfax – this townhouse’s richly decorated interiors, magnificent stucco ceilings and beautiful collection of furniture and clocks unfold a story of life behind closed doors in the bustling Georgian city of York: the food, the fashions and the entertainments.
