Treasurer's House, York

Elegant town house dating from medieval times. Originally home to the treasurers of York Minster and built over a Roman road, the house is not all that it seems.

Nestled behind the Minster, its size, splendour and contents are a constant surprise to visitors – as are the famous ghost stories. The house was carefully restored between 1897 and 1930 by one remarkable man, wealthy local industrialist Frank Green, with rooms presented in a variety of historic styles.
