Being National Trust it is free if you are a NT member plus we were able to join the Ghost Cellar experience which related a ghost story experienced by someone who was still alive today - so not an old story which couldn't be corroborated.

One not to miss if you are in York, the first house to be given to the trust complete with it's furniture, and left exactly as it was handed over. Great cafe too, good quality food.

I think the staff are mostly volunteers and they talk really interestingly about the unusual history of this building. It is very quirky and I preferred the ground floor upwards rather than the basement tour which does interestingly discuss the Roman history of York (but it was pretty dark and cold down there with less visually interesting bits compared to...

Although we are regular visitors to York we hadn't taken the time to visit here; my advice is to try - but get there early to do the tours. First - it's just behind York Minster and so is hidden away but good as part of a day trip. Second get there early to do the 2 tours. Tour 1... More

Life member of the NT so when arrived at York popped in here for a pot of tea and lunch - soup and a sandwich, both excellent. Came back the next day for a good look round Frank Green's collection (shame no photos of the inside of the cabinets especially the one with hidden drawers etc.). The "ghost tour" in... More

As members of the National Trust we always like to go to one of there properties when ever we get away for a break. The Treasurers House was a lovely building displaying some of the the artifacts and furniture acquired many years ago by its Edwardian owner, Frank Green on his travels around the world. The highlight for me being... More

On a short break in the area, using our membership as much as possible to visit new places, read some of the not so flattering views on this property,so we were a little sceptical, but everyone's experience is different. We parked close by with no problems and walked to the property, on arrival we were warmly greeted and given a... More

This house is located in York city centre, next door to the York Minster. If you are visiting there then its worth popping in here too.. The house is steeped in history and is architecturally quite unusual. The guides (who are all volunteers) are very friendly and informative. They brought the history of the building to life. There is also... More

Friendly staff and a interesting house. We are national trust members so didn't pay to get in. House has several rooms and a garden. Right next to the minster. Royalty has stayed, is worth a visit if in York. Ask about the marking around the furniture!

We are members of the National Trust and while on a day trip to York we decided to visit this house and have some lunch. However we were encouraged to go on the cellar trip as well as going around the house. The cellar trip was very good. The old Roman Road is just below the surface of the cellar... More
