We were so glad to have caught two tours at the Treasurer's House, the first helping us to make sense of the house itself and giving us the stories behind it and, best of all, the Cellar tour. We knew the story of the Roman Centurions but never imagined we would be able to stand on the site of the... More

As national trust members my boyfriend and I decided to pay this place a visit. It was a very interesting experience and the house was very beautiful with many interesting pieces of furniture and art. I have to praise most of all the volunteer staff who where very helpful and welcoming. Each one knew exactly what they where talking about... More

Enjoyed an out of season visit. Quite a lot of the furniture was covered so if I had paid the one-off entrance I wouldn't have been very pleased. There was a choice of tours---history of Frank Green OR the ghostly tales of the House. Seemed a bit odd to have to choose one OR the other but our guide was... More

The Treasurer's House is full of history and was the first house given over to the National Trust. It was unfortunate that we visited out of season so did not have free range of the house, but this turned out to be a bonus in disguise. Our guide round the house, Lisa, made the tour both informative and amusing, giving... More

lots of history with this house. I found it really interesting. There are plenty of staff dotted around to fill you in with the history who are really friendly and enthusiastic. There are also information sheets in each room. Its a stones throw from the minster, easy to find but no parking available. Café looked really nice but we didn't... More

A quaint well kept property with no entrance fee, very helpful guides and a quiet walled garden with ample seating. A very good place to visit

Despite announcing that last visitors were at 3.00pm we arrived at 2.55 and were told that we couldn't go around the House but were given hard hats and told to go down the cellar, which I thought was a punishment for arriving late. However, treated to an excellent tour of the cellars complete with ghostly tales of Roman Soldiers. Better... More

A truly fascinating National Trust property in the centre of York that is steeped in history going back to before the Romans. The house and its contents tell us the rich and eccentric story of its previous owner, Frank Green - who left the property( and everything in it) to the NT in the 30s. The Roman cellar tour is...
