By special invitation to Treasurer's House

There was something quite particular about Mr Frank Green.  He had a certain sense of style and exacting way of doing things. He would have surely approved, therefore, of Treasurer’s latest offering; an exclusive guided tour of the property giving an insight into this uniquely special place. 

With his vision for preserving and championing the past, Mr Green, the curiously eccentric previous owner of Treasurer’s House curated a harmonious oddity juxtaposing different architectural styles and eras alongside a remarkable collection of antiquities and art. 

As you journey through the house with the guide, you will learn more about the man himself and his special gift of Treasurer's House to the National Trust - the first to be gifted complete with its collection.

Hidden gems

Quietly hidden away on an ancient site in the heart of modern day York, Treasurer’s is one of the city’s hidden gems.  Built on the site of the former Treasury to the Minster, to which it owes its name, Treasurer’s has evolved across the centuries surfacing today as a champion hybrid of history and style.  

" Eye-opening, entertaining & atmospheric, the guide was enthusiastic and engaging! Thank you very much!"
