Look in the Verre Eglomise mirror

Whose face will you see in the mirror?

An exciting conservation project is currently underway to rejuvenate one of Frank's ornate mirrors, using the orginal verre eglomise technique. Visit the Blue Drawing Room to marvel at the intricate gold leaf work and gaze into the mirror that once reflected the faces of royal visitors.  


Visit the Roman ghosts in the Cellar


Grab a hard hat for a guide to the cellar, where you will see the remains of the original Roman road and hear about the ghostly sightings documented in York's most haunted house. Daily tour.



See servant life in the Attic

Take a trip to the top of the house on the guided attic tour and take in panoramic views of York. You'll experience what life was like for the servants with this exploration of their living quarters and learn about royal visitors. Daily tour.
