  • Wandered around this national trust site with my partner. It's really interesting hearing the history behind the place. Would recommend a visit next time you are in York.

  • We had a guided tour here, as it's not open to just walk around. The guide was incredibly informative and happy to answer questions. The rest of the team, who I'm guessing are all volunteers, were fabulous too. From the smiley greeter ladies on the door to the happy troops down in the cafe, everyone seemed genuinely happy to help! We had a cup.of tea and some cake in the cafe then went on our hour long tour. Beautiful house, with an interesting owner. I've been to York many times and have never visited the Treasurers House before, I'm glad it's finally ticked off my list! Thanks guys!
  • I was very lucky to have a guest pass, normal prices are £9.00 per adult, £4.50 per child plus family pricing. When I arrived the friendly ladies said it was guided tours and running on the hour. There is a cafe downstairs, toilets and a little historic display about the past and previous owners. The tour was an hour long, so I felt it was good value as a small group with plenty of opportunity to see everything and ask questions. The house has plenty of illusions, and without the guide I would of been duped on the age and what things were made out of. It was also nice to have some information on the previous owners, restoration and some information on the local area. I don't think this is a tour for children, its more about the house and stories. The guide tried to keep it interesting for all including some ghost stories, but the older children on my tour were a bit restless. There are some stairs but if your not that mobile they have put plastic chairs in all the rooms, so you can have a sit down while the guide is talking.
