Look in the Verre Eglomise mirror

Whose face will you see in the mirror?

An exciting conservation project is currently underway to rejuvenate one of Frank's ornate mirrors, using the orginal verre eglomise technique. Visit the Blue Drawing Room to marvel at the intricate gold leaf work and gaze into the mirror that once reflected the faces of royal visitors.  

 

Take a tour of our attic or cellar

Find out about servant life and royal visitors in the attic, or grab a hard hat and hear about Roman soldiers in our haunted cellar. Both tours run daily.

Dress up dapper

Frank Green loved his fashion and was always well turned out

Step into Frank's shiny shoes by sharing his love of dressing up in the flat on the first floor. We have a fantastic selection of clothes and accessories to try on, from frilly shirts to bowler hats, and you can learn how to tie a bow-tie the proper way

Listen to the bells

The Treasurer’s House garden is planted in a blue and white colour scheme

The Treasurer's House garden is a tranquil haven and particularly beautiful in the summer months with roses, delphiniums, and peonies filling the borders with colour. Sit a while and listen to the songs and sounds of York Minster.

Our bees

Since 2012, we've had our own beehive at Treasurers House in the kitchen garden, looked after by our head gardener Steve Hodges.
