The guides cheerfully admit the house contents are Mr Green's 1930's vision of history. His choices are fascinating, but not always of the best quality. It feels somewhat like history purchased in bulk.

We didn't realise that this really interesting house was so close to the minster and so accessible and quiet when all around is buzzing in the Christmas markets! Very interesting, well presented and a pleasant wander.

As members of the National Trust we decided to pay a visit. It is behind the Minister (not the easiest to find) but inside it is definitely worth a visit as loads of history about the Green family, the house and it's links to the Minister and the Royal family. It takes around 45 minutes to N hour and we... More

We visited this property because we were in York. It is quite different from other NT properties in that it is quite small and quirky. That said the guides were very well informed and the children enjoyed finding the lego around the house. Took about half an hour to look around.

Visited on Saturday with teenage daughter, had lovely time. The Christmas decorations are beautiful. Visited many heritage sites but the Treasurers House has a very informal feel, not a lot of cordoned areas. The guides placed in each room were very friendly and informative.

We were looking forward to our visit only to be told the building was closed all week to decorate for Christmas. Seems a bit excessive. Also cutting down a large tree in the grounds that week..
