History

Doncaster’s elegant Mansion House, a focus for civic pride, has dominated the High Street for over two hundred and fifty years. It is one of only three Mansion Houses remaining in the country along with those in London and York.

Whilst the Mansion Houses of London and York provided accommodation for the mayor as one of their functions the Bristol Mansion House was built solely as a home for the mayor.

Doncaster Mansion House, however, was designed as a place for corporate entertaining and, although there were several rooms to provide living accommodation, the house was never intended as a residence for the mayor in his year of office, although a few mayors made use of the rooms for this purpose

Doncaster Mansion House is situated on High Street in the heart of the Town Centre.
