VIDEO: See inside the Mansion House

Doncaster’s historic Mansion House is set to be opened up to the public for a variety of uses now the politicians have moved out.

The town’s former corridors of power will be turned over to public use with weddings, social events and much more planned for the Grade I listed building.

Tea dances and afternoon tea events are already taking place and there are plans to open a tea room in the great kitchen as well as guided tours and weddings.

The Free Press took a sneak peek behind normally closed doors to discover some of the secrets and splendour of the building which dominates Doncaster High Street.
