This historical masterpiece that is now a museum was designed by the architect John Carr and is one of the best examples of a Georgian townhouse in York. It is in the heart of York itself, and was the winter home of Viscount Fairfax and his daughter, Anne. It provides us with a walk through the world as it existed there in the 18th Century. Committed and enthusiastic staff are available throughout the house to give you a factually comprehensive tour of all the rooms. This is a proper insight into the period, embellished with tales of the time, furniture, paintings, artefacts and interesting facts! Fairfax House is a cultural treat that must be part of your itinerary when visiting the historically rich town of York.
