|On Blake Street, just to the south-west of York Minster, you will find the fabulous 18th century Assembly Rooms where York's high society once dined and danced the evenings away.|
These rooms were built in the 1730s for the Third Earl of Burlington, and are an excellent example of 18th century elegance. For example the Central Hall contains over 50 sumptuously decorated columns and has marble clad walls.
The Assembly rooms are currently home to a small restaurant, which is open daily. They are also still occasionally used for evening functions such as balls or charity events.
