Mansion House


The Mansion House was the residence of the Mayor of Doncaster from 1750 to 1922 and as such was finished in a manner, which reflected the importance, dignity and tradition of the office of the First Citizen of the Borough.


Although there have been minor changes to the Palladian design, the existing interior features have been retained. Within the impressive rooms many treasured artefacts are displayed. The artefacts have been acquired over a period of 200 years and represent a myriad of styles and magnificently illustrate changes in local and national society and culture.
