Welcome to York Civic Trust.
We are a membership organisation,
run for the benefit of all who live in,
work in, or visit York. The Civic Trust’s
vision is ‘promoting heritage, shaping tomorrow’.
York is a city built on a multi-layered past
with an exciting and optimistic future. The
challenges it faces today are shared with
cities across the world – climate change,
population growth, housing, transport and
economic expansion. York Civic Trust runs a
programme of activities for members and the
public that explore both the past and the
future of the city. Our museum at Fairfax House
is an immersive exploration of 18th century life.
Come and join us – influence the future of York
and enjoy the city’s diverse heritage.
