Visit Treasurer’s House in York

Step inside this house of contradictions in the centre of York. Tucked behind York Minster, Treasurer’s House is not as it first appears. In 1897 it was bought by Frank Green, the grandson of a wealthy industrialist, and by 1900 he had transformed it at great speed into an elaborately decorated town house, ready for the visit of Edward VII. Book your place on an exclusive tour to hear about Frank Green’s life and find out how he saved Treasurer’s House and changed it into the grand show home we see today.
