Treasures House - Review

The Treasure’s House was home to the Treasurers of York Minster till the 16th century after which it came to be owned privately. Today it is maintained by the National Trust and offers insight into thousands of years of history from its foundation to the roof.

  • As you move around the house, do take a moment to gaze into the Verre Eglomise ornate mirror that is being restored to its former grandeur.
  • When in the Treasurer’s House, dress like the Treasurer! Play dress up with the choicest set of clothes and accessories
  • Don’t restrict yourself to the fine dining rooms and bedrooms at the Treasurer’s House. They run daily tours to the attic and cellar. Locals believe the cellar to be the abode of ghosts of Roman soldier.
  • Complete your visit with a nice lunch at the tea room.

The locals have claimed to have seen apparitions at the House on many occasions. In fact, TV series ‘Ghosthunters’ has also shot an episode here. Special ghost tours are also available, if you dare.

Treasures House, York Reviews

Google+
  • Very interesting, largely because of the eccentric owner who created a very strange building. Each room has been done in a different style to illustrate the styles used in England over the centuries. Some truly remarkable antiques. I very much liked the fact that the museum volunteer in each room provided a lot of interesting facts about the room and its contents. Made the visit very memorable.

  • An interesting experience seeing earlier preservation attempts and the use of older furniture to create an 'age'. The colour scheme is interesting as is the clock and bedroom. The entry is free for Trust members. Cafe and toilets downstairs, easy access to ground floor only. Easily found at the Cathedral area.

  • It's the volunteers that make this place. You could walk round and not think much about it, but the volunteers explain the story behind this house which makes it so interesting. It's right in the middle of York centre next to the Minster. The building is meant to be haunted and the story relating to one if the rooms with the apparent old woman ghost is fascinating and rather chilling. We didn't do the cellar tour as there was a bit of a wait, but we may do it next time we visit.

  • Well worth a visit. A house with a very mixed history and now frozen in a state requested by Frank Green who passed it on to the National Trust in 1930. The tour of the attic provides a fantastic insight to the way in which the serving staff coexisted with their employer.

  • An interesting house, but rather confusing. The owner who donated it turned it into a medieval, Georgian, combination. The furniture and paintings are nice but the house only took about 30 min to go through. There are far more authentic houses to tour in the city.
