York Mansion House

The ‘Opening Doors’ project will sensitively refurbish this Grade 1 Listed building and develop a unique and dynamic visitor experience as one of the top cultural and civic attractions in York, making the civic assets of the Lord Mayor’s residence more accessible to a wider public. One of its core aims is to enhance community involvement and to develop a greater educational provision for adults and children. The project will improve the interpretation of its history and provide better conservation and maintenance of the building and its collections. The anticipated increased footfall and reduced carbon footprint will go a long way to achieving long-term financial sustainability and resilience, helping to establish the Mansion House in the cultural evolution of the city.
