We only had a chance to see the gardens because it was after closing hours. The views of the lovely gardens are wonderful from the walls. Very photogenic place and we regret not seeing the interior.

Hidden away behind the minster this is a treasure indeed. Run by the National Trust it’s guides were up to the usual knowledgeable standard and keen to explain. The house itself was very interesting and unusual.

A real hidden gem of a place. For those already members of the National Trust it is a free visit, which makes it unmissable. Hidden away behind the Minster through one of York's beautiful old walls is a immaculate, peaceful and delightful garden with the...More

Nice to see how the privileged few lived. Really central so it's an easy and informative visit. We did find that it's not really a place you can spend a lot of time browsing.

The treasurers house is near the shambles in York and whilst the house is interesting with a ghost story and some lovely objects I actually enjoyed the garden (which is free entry) equally as much, small but pretty well balanced and peaceful
