Shop icon

Barley Hall is a stunning medieval house, once home to the Priors of Nostell and the Mayor of York. Until the 1980s the house was hidden under the relatively modern facade of a derelict office block. Only when the building was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval building discovered and its history uncovered.

Explore York in the time of Henry VIII at our Power and Glory exhibition. Discover the archaeology, first-hand accounts of life in the city and the effects that this greatest of Tudor monarchs had on life in York during his thirty-eight year reign.

Plus, exclusive to Barley Hall: experience ix sumptuous costumes from the smash-hit BBC2 series, Wolf Hall, including items worn by Claire Foy and Mark Rylance.
