We are delighted to announce that Fairfax House is open again after eight long months of hibernation!
Throughout October we are running The Character of Home performances (find out more here), but the house will remain OPEN for general admission Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 2:30pm (last entry at 2pm) and Sundays 11 – 4 (last entry 3:30). Click HERE to pre-book your slot.
For those familiar with the house, you may notice a few changes. Using our time away productively, we have conducted some exciting archival research that has unearthed new information about our collection, the Fairfax family and the history of Castlegate. The layout and content of the house reflects these new discoveries, and we can’t wait to share them with visitors.
Opening safety is our paramount concern. Visitors will be admitted at 15 minute intervals in households/bubbles of up to 6 people. Face masks are required and regular sanitising points are available throughout the visit. You can read a full list of the safety measures in place here.
We really hope you will come along and support us. Every ticket sold helps conserve York and preserve Fairfax House for future generations.
