King's Manor occupies a quiet corner of Exhibition Square and is situated right next to the York City Art Gallery and only a stone's throw from the Minster. This historic site dates from medieval times when it was once the Abbot's house and so associated with St Mary's Abbey. The majestic ruins of the Abbey lie behind the Yorkshire Museum and are set in the splendid gardens, which adjoin King's Manor. The refectory and courtyard are open to the public and morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea may be taken there. Over the centuries Kings Manor has been many things to many people, but right now it is an integral part of the University of York and the perfect place in which to study the past. Admission is free.
