Such a pleasure to visit a historical site and see how the other half lived. Glad to see it hasn't been touched. Great work national trust.

Apparently the first collection/property the National Trust were bequeathed as a whole. Situated just behind the Minster. The owner left strict instructions how it was to be looked after, wanting it to showcase how he felt the house should look, according to his version of...More

Been to York many times but never visited this house which is quirky to say the least. Filled with an eclectic range of furniture and objets d'art. Delightful small garden in the shadow of York Minster.

I don't know why we've put off coming here for so long. This house is gorgeous! The staff are really friendly and the volunteers certainly know their stuff. From the very first room we went into, my husband and I became intrigued with the story...More

You can purchase on line. I highly recommend if you are going to visit several attractions getting the one day York city pass from the visit York tourism shop by the Minster. Will save you money. Only good for the day.
