Step into history

MonkBridge House was built in 1864 and has been the home to a number of prominent city merchants, including a fellmonger, woolstapler, coal merchant, the home of two Lord Mayors of York and the Clerk to the Guardians of the York Workhouse.

Between 1943 and 1962 it was St Mary’s Home for Girls before returning to private ownership. For the last 30 years it has been a guest house offering elegant and comfortable rooms for visitors to York.
