The Treasurer’s House

Minster Yard York YO1 7JL

Situated just next to the Minster, the medieval Treasurer’s House was the first ever property bestowed to the National Trust. You can nosey round the collection of 300-year-old paintings, ceramics and furniture gathered together by the house’s restorer, but the highlights are the cellars – scene of many a terrifying ghost story – where you can see the remains of the Roman road over which the house is built, and the attics, once Edwardian servants quarters. If it’s all too spooky for you, head outside to the peaceful sunken garden. Dogs are welcome in the garden, on leads only.
