It is not very big compared to other historical sites but it is National Trust so alright if you are a member. Quite an interesting house and the guides were very good. We also went underneath the building (had to wear a hard hat) an heard about the ghost (sighting of Roman soldiers).

Super property in the heart of the City of York (just behind the Minster), Room guides are very helpful and have lots of stories to tell. Frank Green was quite an eccentric; he inherited the family business and was a very wealthy man, collecting a treasure trove of items, rebuilding and furnishing the Treasurer's House, he then gave it in...

Thought it would be much older as name suggested but although not my cup of tea( too new) was very interesting and the guides in each room couldn't t wait to tell you everything about the place.

York has so much on offer - walk the Walls and the Shambles, do the shopping, take a river trip, see the Railway Museum, Betty's Tea Room, York Minster, all of the Museums etc etc etc but save a little time for a bit of peace and quiet in a little tucked away corner behind the Minster - The National...

This is a fascinating old building to look round and it is full of interesting furniture etc. Particularly look out for the framed embroidery of the story of Esther - although it's a pity that there was no postcard available of this!

This is a true gem in York, and well worth your visit. The house is chock full of wonderful furniture, artwork, and a large number of oddities. It is a great thing that the last owner donated his entire house and collection to the city. The volunteers (most of very senior years) were very friendly and knowledgable, adding to the... More

In a very tranquil setting by the Minster, the Treasurers House is a very eclectic collection. The house itself is very pretty, but the gardens are wonderful. Each room seems to be a different theme, with various antiques from all sorts of periods and countries. Tea shop is lovely!

Loved this house, hidden away behind York Minster. Frank Green lived here upto the 1930's and purchased items from around Yorkshire - a very interesting insight!
