    We are National Trust members so free visiting the Minister we went here. An interesting property and a good gift to the NT.  more »

    As it was a very wet day in York, and we were both NT members it was definitely a good idea to visit this attraction. It's certainly a slightly bizarre but interesting place. A real mix of styles left...  more »

  • Lots of interesting information. It's not the biggest attraction, but they get a lot in there! Good way to kill an hour or two.
  • A worthwhile place to visit in York. Full of ghost stories, royal connections, ornate furniture and fascinating portraits. Essentially a rich period house steeped in history
  • Lovely old house full of Frank Green's interesting collection of antiques. We enjoyed the house and it's contents very much however the experience was somewhat spoiled by staff who had obviously been instructed to buttonhole visitors entering each room and deliver a rehearsed speech. I also disliked the gimmicky and misleading presentation of Frank Green's restoration as a 'creation'; as though it had never really existed as a house. Not sure of the point of this. The perspex boxes of coloured counters and the scattered bits of Lego seemed out of place and pointless; Is this an attempt to make it more accessible and visitor friendly? It has the the opposite effect and spoils the mood of the house.
  • It's an interesting house but I'm afraid it's been priced far too highly. We were offered a cellar tour for an extra four pounds each which consisted of walking down into a single small room whilst someone told us an old ghost story that has been doing the rounds for about 50 years. Very hard sell on the national trust membership also. Ask once, if the answer is no then that's it. To keep asking is rude and embarrassing.
  • A gem hidden in the heart of York, well worth a visit if not just to enjoy the view.
