The past is all around us

“The past is all around us, and sharing our knowledge about it is a valuable and enlightening experience. Fyling Hall’s Year 8 certainly got the best out of the past during their visit to Fairfax House museum in York last week, and greatly enjoyed the experience.

Love learning, love History, love Fairfax!

Made us feel we were in Georgian times!

The artefacts on show were genuine and helped us to travel back in time.

They were interesting and unique.

Lots of things to see.

Outstanding attention to detail!

You could believe someone once lived here.

Very homely, friendly and welcoming!

It certainly helped to deepen their appreciation of Georgian Britain and the role of Primary evidence in shaping our understanding of the historic environment. We would like to extend our thanks to the Director and her team at Fairfax House for a truly fascinating and educational experience.”
