  • Visited on Saturday with teenage daughter, had lovely time. The Christmas decorations are beautiful. Visited many heritage sites but the Treasurers House has a very informal feel, not a lot of cordone...  more »
  • A house full of interest, well staffed by intelligent, caring and knowledgable volunteers. When we return we'll do it all again! 
  • We were looking forward to our visit only to be told the building was closed all week to decorate for Christmas. Seems a bit excessive. Also cutting down a large tree in the grounds that week..

  • Well worth a visit, went round on the free heritage weekend but would have paid. Staff gave talks in all of the rooms. Very knowledgeable which adds to the entertainment of the visit. Very nice cafe in the basement.
  • Very historically knowledgeable staff. Very approachable but a bit overbearing at times though.
  • Such a calming garden after the bustle of York centre! Friendly staff and nice tea room - beautiful house - well worth a visit!
  • Odd mix of styles. Very good room stewards
  • I love history but the last thing I ever enjoy having to do is stare at something with no history. I was not disappointed with this marvellous National Trust exhibition. The tour guide Liz was fantastic and super helpful. There are many volunteers who are on hand to answer questions as you walk around the house freely. The owner was the industrialist Frank Green who restored the modern house. As I am also into the paranormal, I enjoyed this immensely because it has historical references to everything from Roman history through medieval times, and up to Edwardian history. I defy anyone who doesn't dislike historical tours to dislike this one. They have examples of untouched attics from Edwardian times and Roman architecture in the same house for goodness sake. Wow! Oh and although this building doesn't have luggage lockers, there is a Left Luggage office where you can leave items for £5 each. York is one of my favourite tourist locations, and this is one of my most memorable locations. Every section of the place is riddled with history. Also I definitely recommend the yummy food. Local leek and pork sausage sandwiches were so delicious that they reminded me how nice food really can be.
