The Treasurer's House
Originally the home of the medieval treasurers of York Minster, this elegant house dates largely from the 18th century but contains work of the 13th and 14th century. It stands on the site of the Roman Imperial Barracks, remnants of which remain.
Many royal visitors have stayed here and Elizabeth Montague 'Queen of the Bluestockings' was born within in 1718.
The Treasurer's House was presented to the National Trust in 1930 upon the death of industrialist Frank Green, the last private owner.
Beautifully floodlit at night, and open to the public during the day, this is one of York's most popular historic buildings.
Open: 30 Mar - 31 Oct 10.30am - 5.00pm.
Admission: Adult-£3.00 Child-£1.50 Family-£6.00
