We visited the Treasures House as part of the Illuminating York event. This allowed us to explore the house after dark. We weren't allowed in the cellars though which was a shame because this is where the roman solder ghosts were seen. If you want to hear the story then visit during the daytime when the cellars are open. This... More

Treasurers house is a great place to visit in the heart of York , historically interesting and beautifully restored . Would definitely recommend a guided tour , especially so you don't miss out on the cellars !

Lovely place with a beautiful small walled garden. Great history and if you do visit I would advise going on a guided tour, which bring the place to life. The tour tells stories of various ghosts who are supposed to reside in the house and gardens. Very well preserved historic house. Nice shop in the cellar and an exceptional tea... More

A wonderful experience. This house is full of culture and history. It also has a ghostly past! Beautifully decorated and restored to its former glory throughout and is a pleasure to visit. If you want to visit the haunted cellars and vaults you need to book a separate tour - so check the times of the cellar tours if you... More

In the heart of York right next to the Minster is a beautiful gem of a historic house. The National Trusts Treasurers House is tucked away from the crowds and is a tranquil escape. Steeped in history with a fabulous tea room you are missing out if you don't pay a visit. You might even meet the ghosts in the... More

The house has a history going back as far as the nearby Minster, but the theme of the tour is the life and changes that the previous owner made to the house during his tenure and the reputed ghosts! Baron Green was a very wealthy industrialist and associate of the Royal Family who collected paintings, furniture, and other objects which... More

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
