Elegant town house dating from medieval times

Only a few metres from York Minster, this was the first house ever given to the National Trust complete with a collection - and it is not all that it first seems.

It has a history spanning 2,000 years, from the Roman road in the cellar to the Edwardian servants' quarters in the attics, and thirteen period rooms in between.

These house one man's remarkable collection of antique furniture, ceramics, textiles and paintings from a 300-year period.

Infamous ghost stories are another of the many quirky attributes of this property.
