A splendid medieval hall. I had read good things about this hidden delight and was not disappointed. An excellent reconstruction of a medieval townhouse. A very interesting building full of history. Looks, feels and smells great. You can touch almost everything and they even have some dressing up stuff (so great for kids!) The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
A marvellous place with lots of history. The exhibits are amazing and very well presented. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are very knowledgeable about the history of the hall and quick to give tidbits. They also answered all the kid's questions and provided useful information about York. Like all the places in York, the staff were dressed in medieval costumes and there was medieval music in the background completing the whole experience.
There is so much history! And the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful! The Barely Hall is a restored building from the 15th century, everything on display is according to the building standards, architecture and traditions of that era. We were also told by the staff about the rich history of ancient civilizations that are still being unearthed under York! I'm glad we stopped here to visit. Get the membership package to see all 5 attractions, you'll be glad you did if you like history and archeology!
Never knew this was here, but glad I discovered it. Nicely restored medieval home, with an interesting exhibition about magic on. Great price which also covered access to 2 other exhibitions in York.
Tucked away down an alley off Stonegate so not obvious to find. Little too much emphasis on magic for my preference but interesting all the same. Not recommended for anyone needing disabled access as lots of steps.
