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.

Heritage Open Days: Treasurer's House

  • 12 — 13 September 2015

Tucked behind York Minster, Treasurer's House reveals wealthy industrialist Frank Green's love of furniture and interior design. In 1897 he transformed the building from a 'bug-ridden slum' into the grand townhouse you see today. Left to the National Trust in 1930, with strict instructions from Frank Green not to move anything, this 14 room showcase is just how he left it. On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th , the ghost cellar tours will be free of charge (suitable for 8yrs+, this is a hard hat tour with low ceilings). Places on the tours are limited to 11 per tour. Booking is on a first come first served basis. There is also a complimentary attic tour exploring the hidden attic spaces that were once home to the servants of the household (one per day, first come first served basis, limited places, suitable for 10yrs+).

Suitable for

  • Any age
