  • A fascinating 1920s reconstruction of several much older buildings into an extraordinary town house. Located just behind the Minster, it is in the perfect position to give views of the Chapter House and north transept. Beautifully restored and furnished as it would have been between the wars, the story of the house and its owner is well told. The volunteer guides are all knowledgable and so enthusiastic There is a great cafe in the basement, selling lovely home made food. Well worth a visit, though there isn't a great deal to interest young children.
  • It was great seeing it dressed up for Christmas. The guides were very helpful. The cafe provided good fresh refreshments
  • Lovely house and a big history lesson about the house. I just want to say a big thank you to all the staff members dotted around the house, there all so full of knowledge about the house and Frank Green and seem to really love there job. There a credit to the house and Frank Green himself.
  • Little gem in York near the minster. As NT member free to get in but can't say about the cost to non members. Fascinating family history and Frank Green has created a different era in each room. Coffee shop in basement.
  • Beautiful garden and lovely sitting area outside. Very relaxing. Inside is very well kept. Tours of the attic and the haunted cellar were informative and fun.
