By sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their Visited the National Trust Treasurer's House (Thurs 18th May). The first house to be gifted to the N.T. in total with all furnishings included. Really fascinating, watch out especially for the small clock on the first floor with a huge pendulum which hangs through the floor to... More

We didn't allow nearly enough time to do this house justice! Do the ghost in the cellar talk and take time to listen to all the guides.

Spent a couple of hours here. Entry was free as we are National Trust members. Well worth a visit and the conducted tour of the ghostly cellars was an added bonus.

Welcoming staff in a well- looked after house and garden. I loved hearing about owner Frank Green and his insistence on everything being laid out and kept just as he demanded ( even putting markers on the floor to ensure his staff put furniture back in the right place!). The collection is interesting and the house a delight.

Right opposite the Minster with great views. This lovely old house is very tranquil. The garden has just been restored to its original design which is very simple but charming. Good cafe too.

My wife and I visited the Treasurer's House whilst in York for the weekend and opted for the 'tour of the attic' which gave an insight into the life of the staff in the early 1900s. This trip was genuinely fascinating and painted a picture of the relationship between the staff and Frank Green, the redoubtable owner of the property... More

This was a fantastic find adjacent to the Minster. The guides were friendly, amusing and very knowledgeable. We don't normally hang around and chat about the places we visit, with the guides as we are a quick look and go type of couple ...but this was an exception, very interesting.

We visited this attraction. It wasn't busy but the ghost tour was fully booked. We had lunch here which was fine although it was cash only - card payment machine not working. The property was interesting and I'm glad we saw it although I wouldn't feel the need to visit again. The National Trust guides were very interesting and knowledgeable.

This has been run by the National Trust since it was bequeathed to them by Frank Green who purchased this medieval house for himself in 1897. Not only did he leave the house, but all its meticulously-placed furniture and contents. The best bit for us was the tour of the loft space which had been left as it was (albeit... More

Well worth a visit, historic amalgamation of several house, near The Minster in York's historic heart. Great little sunny sheltered garden, fantastic staff. Creepy cellar tour where famously ghostly Roman soldiers appeared, and wearing circular arm shields- 50 years later historians have confirmed this fact which was ridiculed by academics at the time when the electrician reported it. Quite atmospheric.
