About Fairfax House

They say first impressions count and they do, for looking at the beautiful facade of Fairfax House, designed by John Carr, noted York architect of the 18th century, you immediately know that the interior is going to be equally special.

The house epitomises the very best of mid 18th century rococo style and decoration. It presently enjoys a reputation as one of the finest Town House's in Britain and makes a marvellous backdrop for what is now York's premier museum.

Fairfax House is famous for its winter showing of its unique "Keeping of Christmas" exhibition, this depicts the true delight of an 18th century Christmas. The exhibition draws attention from miles around and runs from early December to January 6th.

This is also the home of the famous Noel Terry collection of 18th century English furniture and clocks.

With other exhibitions throughout the year, this is a place not to be missed. It is a wonderful building full of the timeless charm of the 18th century, it is fortunate indeed that it was saved for the enjoyment of future generations by York's Civic Trust.
