    Stumbled across Barley Hall and decided to visit - so glad we did. This was so child friendly - lots of hands on for children who could try out medieval games, try on costumes and even perform on a li...  more »

    We bought a "medieval" ticket that covered this site and the Richard III and Henry VII Experiences which made it very good value. The ticket lasts for a full year which is even better! We have visited...  more »

  • Great place to visit. Being an old building there is limited wheel chair access.
  • Had a free ticket. Very welcoming gentleman in the shop. Once in your free to wonder around for as long as you like. Its set tucked away down a passage so look out for the signs to find it, easy to miss and walk past. You can handle a lot of the items and there are various games etc from the period to play which really helped to connect to the history of the building. The building itself is fabulous. It is one way in and same way back out. Recomnending going as soon as it opens so it is quite and you can see everything easily like we did.
  • Super interesting. Lovely guy selling the tickets and was very helpful. Would reccomend it!
  • A surprisingly large, hidden, authentic partial reconstruction (some is still original) of an upscale medieval hall.
  • A great place to visit for an hour with some small children...interactive and informative

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
