Treasurer’s House, York, North Yorkshire

Tucked behind York Minster, Treasurer’s House is not as it first appears.

In 1897, Frank Green (the grandson of a wealthy industrialist) bought and created a lavish show home, grand enough to impress Edward VII during his visit. He was passionate about history and indulged this by saving Treasurer’s and other buildings in York. He also built a large collection of fine antiques, art and furniture from around the world,and this was the first house given to the National Trust, complete with its collection.

The award winning garden is an oasis of calm, so relax and enjoy unrivalled views of the Minster. Head to the National Trust high street shop around the corner to round off your visit.
