  • We visited Treasurer' House and really enjoyed seeing the house and hearing about its characteristic last owner, Frank Green. We also decided to take the optional attic tour and really recommend other...  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 »

  • 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.

You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses.
