  • This is a well preserved, large house, adjacent to the Minster which, apparently, was never occupied by a Treasurer. We really enjoyed wandering around the interior where there are several good chimne...  more »
  • We followed the sign and ended here so we went in. The garden offers a restful view. The walk is very engaging as is the park in front.  more »
  • The Treasurers House is right behind the Minster and its opening hours are shorter than most tourist sites . There is so much to see in York that we should have moved this lower down the list  more »

  • Great house in an amazing location. We did the rooftop tour which was awesome, especially as we were the only people on it! It was great to see the old servants quarters relatively untouched. The house has had a makeover and the new cafe is beautiful. The gardens are a lovely place for a picnic too.
  • A treasure in York which I just stumbled across. Some very resourceful guides who were very keen to talk but knew little on engaging children. Downstairs, the Cafe was lovely and a whole room dedicated to one man's apparent ghostly experience seemed over the top. Definitely worth a visit as you pass the cathedral.
  • Spent a good couple of hours here with my grandparents. The volunteers were lovely and also told us some really interesting things about the house and the objects in it. There are also activities to keep children occupied throughout the house and lovely little garden at the front of the house. Being in the centre of York it is ideal for a day out with the family!
  • Lovely house with extensive history. Good, cafe serving great food. A little off the beaten tourist track in York but worth finding for a bit of peace and calm in the busy city. Try the cellar tour if you have time.
  • Really interesting house, wish I'd had time to ho on the ghost your! Lunch in the cafe was excellent.
