The building is very interesting in its own right, as an example of a Medieval town house. As well as information about those who lived in the house, there is also an exhibition about witchcraft and the uses of herbs. The staff I met were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I bought a combined ticket with the Jorvik Centre, and the two are only a short distance apart.

Arrived early but the young lady in charge was brilliant, she made sure I saw as much as I could as a wheelchair user, doorways are awkward as it is not built for today, there is so much they have done to preserve this and is as stated good to go around, especially if you are able bodied, well worth a visit and see the display on how it was renovated

Well restored house with interesting history. One way system due to Covid-19 meant that you could not visit part of it.
