Summer is here, and from July 17th York Mansion House comes alive with hidden trails, sparkling treasure, and delicious smells winding up the stairs from the kitchen. An interactive adventure is waiting for you as you walk through dark corridors and vast halls, discovering York’s original house party, and your new home from home.
MR HUDSON’S SUMMER HOLIDAY
Former Lord Mayor Gorge Hudson has been off on his summer holidays and sent us some postcards that we’ve hidden around the house… Can you find them, and follow the trail to answer his questions? As you find them, make sure you try your hand at being Lord Mayor, dress up and match your outfit to the portraits!
All summer, come and get creative with us! Dress up a Lord Mayor, design your own postcard, or help us decorate the front of the House. Come into the magnificent State Room and let your creativity flow – we can’t wait to see what you make.
Everyday at 11.30am and 2.30pm, we will be whipping up some tasty treats in our historic kitchen. We’ve dipped into our banqueting archives and picked all your favourite things… Georgian style! Make sure you come down to help us out, or have a go at making your own eighteenth century meal with our interactive cooking experience.
York Mansion House us open 10:30am to 4:30pm, Wednesday to Sunday. All activities included with admission, which is 50% off for York Residents (with valid York Card).
