Having visited York numerous times we were keen to take a look at somewhere we hadn't been to. As members of National Trust, Treasurer's House seemed an ideal choice. Right from entering the building we found the staff to be informative and friendly. I would recommend that you take a trail sheet from the reception especially if children are in... More

This place is not what it seems at first. It is on the site of the old treasurers house but is in fact two old houses knocked into one by a chap who just wanted somewhere to display his collection of furniture. All the furniture has now gone and there are some examples of the type of stuff he would... More

Possibly the most interesting and engaging National Trust property we have been to. The staff were so informative and friendly, we spent about 10-15 minutes in almost every room talking about the history of the house and it's hundreds of objects. Almost every object had some kind of fascinating story behind it, not always expressed by the room leaflets, so... More

While having a weekend in York, we went with our 11 & 13 year old daughters to visit the National Trust building, the Treasurer's House. It looks like a smallish property to visit but on entering we soon found we could join a tour of the basement & the attics. This made the visit more fun and interesting. We looked... More

Called in as we are NT members and were in York for the day. House was interesting with friendly and informative staff. We spent about 1.5 hours there, but didn't take the cellar tour.

Lovely old house fantastic seeing history being preserved especially in the Kings Room with the original stenciling on the walls. Would have loved to go down into the cellar but could only go in there if a guide was available so that was a bit disappointing. well worth a visit.

This place is just beautiful , and quite haunted. The gardens are small but delightful , some great photo opportunities. The National Heritage cafe in the basement sells the best warm cheese scones and a fabulously large pot of Yorkshire tea , don't miss it !

A beautifully preserved house close by the Minster operated by the National Trust. The former home of Frank Green, an interesting character in himself the house is well presented. Take the time to do the cellar tour where the famous 'Roman soldiers' ghosts were seen by a young apprentice in 1953. The guide will provide atmospheric lighting. Low entrance but... More

No parking. Interesting interior reflecting how the tastes of one man can change the character of a building. Informative attendants in each room. Lovely garden to sit down and enjoy. Neither wife nor I could manage the steep steps down to the tea rooms, so can't comment.
