  • We had a guided tour here, as it's not open to just walk around. The guide was incredibly informative and happy to answer questions. The rest of the team, who I'm guessing are all volunteers, were fabulous too. From the smiley greeter ladies on the door to the happy troops down in the cafe, everyone seemed genuinely happy to help! We had a cup.of tea and some cake in the cafe then went on our hour long tour. Beautiful house, with an interesting owner. I've been to York many times and have never visited the Treasurers House before, I'm glad it's finally ticked off my list! Thanks guys!
  • Noal was both funny and knowledgeable during our tour. He made the experience so much more. Wonderful time visiting this interesting house. Well worth visiting if in York
  • What a revelation, from a small entrance off a cobbled street behind York Minster to a large house that was originally 3! Complete with banqueting Hall, concealed doors, sumptuous bedrooms and chandeliers. The tour was very informative with lots of history about Mr Green who donated the house and its treasures to the National Trust
  • Tour of the house by a well informed guide. House was renovated & changed by the previous owner whose family had very high social aspirations. Social climbers but giving the house intact shows us exactly how he lived. Particularly beautiful small garden with a fabulous view of the cathedral.
  • This is definitely worth booking! You get an hour guided tour of this beautiful house. You get to learn so much history and it’s honestly such a nice thing to do in York! The art , architecture within this house is breathtaking! Definitely worth going.
