De Grey Rooms
In St. Leonard's Place

The De Grey Rooms The De Grey rooms, though named after Walter de Grey, the famous mid-13th century Archbishop of York, were only built in 1841 by GT Andrews. They stand in St. Leonard's Place, sandwiched between Bootham Bar and the Theatre Royal.

Originally the officers' mess of the Yorkshire Hussars, it was later used for concerts and public entertainments. The building is now home to the York Tourist Information Centre: the best place to find out all about the city...other than through Britannia of course.
