Join us as we journey to a Christmas past with the house beautifully decorated for Christmas. The period rooms are transformed with decorations throughout, from gifts and garlands, twinkling trees and fruit and floral displays filling the rooms with delicious smells. Take your time as you explore and get a sense of Frank Green's version of a historic house, and his eclectic collection of art and furniture.
For younger visitors...
Take on the challenge of spotting the gingerbread people as you explore. Some are where you might expect to find them, and others are hidden in the strangest of places!
Around the house
Each room takes on its own identity and tells a small part of the Christmas at Treasurer's House story. A few highlights to look out for...
- Frank Green's reading nook in the West Sitting Room
- The party in full swing in the Blue Drawing Room
- Black and gold galore in the Queen's Room
- Paper hellebores in abundance in the Tapestry Room
- Bedtime on Christmas Eve in the King's Room
- A homemade Christmas from the servants
In the garden
Outside the Christmas tree lifts any seasonal gloom and although it might be too cold to linger for long, it's worth wrapping up and soaking in the festive atmosphere - with the Minster bells adding to the occasion.
Free entry to National Trust members and under fives or normal admission charges apply.
" After living in York for many years and not visiting, we thought it was time. Why haven't I been before was the question I was left with! The house itself is gorgeous and the history is very interesting. Add onto that the Christmas displays and decorations, what’s not to like? "
Every penny you spend helps to support the care of National Trust places in York. Thank you.
The café remains closed this year, however we know the scones created by the team a few years back are a popular seasonal treat. Have a go at home with the recipe below or pick up one of the National Trust recipes books in the shop, the book of scones being the perfect option for budding bakers.
