THE BAR CONVENT is England's oldest living convent, founded in 1686 as a school for girls.

Still home to a community of Catholic sisters today, the building is also open to visitors all year round.

A state-of-the-art exhibition tells the three-hundred-year story of our home, while our award-winning café and guesthouse offer a peaceful haven amidst the busy streets of York.

The Bar Convent welcomes those of all faiths and none.
