Barley Hall is a stunning medieval house, once home to the Priors of Nostell and the Mayor of York. The building has been lovingly restored to its original splendour with its high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames, and possibly the only horn window in England.

Power & Glory: York in the Time of Henry VIII is Barley Hall's newest exhibition, where you can discover first-hand accounts of life in the city and the effects that this greatest of Tudor monarchs had on life in York during his thirty-eight year reign.
