  • Fairfax House is a Georgian town house situated in the city of York in North Yorkshire.

    A fine example of the architecture of the age, Fairfax House dates back to the 18th century. It was built as the winter home for Viscount Fairfax and its interior was designed by the then celebrated architect, John Carr.

    During the 20th century, Fairfax House was used as a cinema and a dance hall. But in the early 1980s the York Civic Trust saved it from falling into decay and has returned it to its former splendour. Visitors today can see how polite York society in the Georgian era entertained. There is a fine collection of furniture, paintings and ornaments which bring the house to life.

    Fairfax House is open daily from February to December. There is a gift shop on site. For more information see www.fairfaxhouse.co.uk
