From Past to Present at the King's Manor

Saturday 21 September 2019, 10.00AM to 15.00

Speaker(s): Kate Giles

The King's Manor is an architectural gem located at the centre of the city of York. Although some of the building is open to the public, many of the rooms are used for teaching or events and so normally inaccessible to the public. On Saturday 21st September we will host a series of guided tours of the building, taking visitors 'behind the scenes' to discover the building's past as the abbot's lodging, headquarters of the Council of the North, Wilberforce Memorial School for the Blind and the home of the University's Archaeology department. Alongside the tours we will have information about some of our latest discoveries.


The King's Manor is a Grade I listed building, with varying degrees of accessibility. Some spaces are accessible via wheelchairs, but not all, and many of the buildings require people to be able to manage stairs. Children and guide dogs welcome.
