The Governor's Parlour is a simple room, somewhat overwhelmed by the large table that occupies the centre of the room. The table sits before a quite superb fireplace, with a splendidly carved 16th century mantle (see photo below).

The stained glass windows are worth noting. Though modern, they illustrate vividly the international trade efforts of the Company, depicting ships leaving York and arriving at far-off ports.
