THE BAR CONVENT is England's oldest living convent, founded in 1686 as a school for girls. It is still home to members of the Congregation of Jesus today.

The Grade 1 Listed eighteenth-century buildings house a state-of-the-art Exhibition, an award-winning Cafe and highly-rated Guest House, plus newly refurbished Conference facilities.

Whether you're here to visit the Exhibition, to relax in the Cafe and garden or to enjoy a city break in historical York, we're sure you'll enjoy your time with us.

The Bar Convent welcomes those of all faiths and none.
