  • This is an interesting house just behind York Minster. We found the volunteers in each room to be knowledgable and very happy to share that knowledge. There is also a really nice restaurant in the bas...  read more »
  • The house is interesting enough but I did expect more to see in it. Our visit didn't start well when for the first two rooms we were badgered by staff eager to tell us about the rooms. It was actually...  read more »
  • If members of the NT worth visiting although quite Spartan and the NT have much more interesting places. it is adjacent to the Minster and The Shambles. 
  • 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 As I am also into the paranormal, I enjoyed this immensely because it has historical references to everything from Roman history through medieval times, and up to Edwardian history.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.
  • Part of the National Trust, a lovely house and an interesting tour.
  • Very interesting National Trust property in the heart of York . We also did the cellar ghost experience, which was extra but worth it if you are into the supernatural.
  • Nice atmosphere in the cafe, excellent scones, unique garden
