A lovely find!

We found this place pretty much by accident on a day out in York in May and as we were NT Members thought we would give the place a try. We were glad we did as we were not... read more

In the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre, just behind the Minster is an haven of peace and quiet that is well worth a visit. Excellent room stewards happy to help with additional information. Beautiful garden, open to all.

Enjoyed this visit as the house is quirky and interesting. I won't give too much away as the pleasure is in discovery. The garden is lovely and this house offers light relief and a personal touch to the various museums and churches etc., in York.

We came here as it was rather late in the evening and we wanted somewhere to explore. We opened the door and the guide informed us that we are closing in half an hour, but would be able to get round the house in time for closure! Perfect, I replied. The rooms were very nicely decorated and the guides were... More

I really love York and highly recommend the York city Day Pass. Treasurer's house has a beautiful garden and located right next to the Minster. However, if you have a day or two to spend in York with so much to see the cost really adds up. The city pass really helps with this. This is a beautiful house well... More

A really interesting house and shows how luxurious the rich could live back in the day. In each room there was a member of staff more than willing to talk to you and share their knowledge of Frank Green and this wonderful house. Thoroughly recommend a visit

A rich and philanthropic local man bought what were three derelict near slums and re-created the old Treasurers House using facts and imagination. All very interesting and with well informed friendly room guides. You do however wonder which bits are true to history. Regardless it is a worthwhile trip and the cellar tea rooms are welcoming and the coffee is... More

Just at the back of the Minster in York is this lovely house which is well worth the visit. More than enough friendly staff to guide you through the house, which is just big enough with out being to big to lose interest for the kids. The gardens are free to visit ... National Trust owned. Also look at the... More

Really enjoyed my visit. The house is beautiful and full of beautiful things. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable as we pottered round. I did think the "cellar tour" was a bit lacking.. Made out to be much more than it actually was.. But everything else was great.

Originally two houses in poor repair, Frank Green had them knocked together, and then restored rooms as he imagined they might have been. Indeed. Banqueting hall, things like that. You are asked if you think it is more like a museum than a lived-in house, and that would be my view. However, full of interesting stuff, the National Trust staff... More
