Tour Guide


Treasurer's House garden

Treasurer's House garden

Wander in the award winning garden next door to York Minster


With a 2000 year history, this house can reveal some surprising facts!

On a guided tour, you can choose to follow the professional guide to the cellars depths and ponder over the mysterious ghostly event that took place there in 1953. This well recorded incident, told time and time again in ghost books, television programmes and on city tours, is hard to believe until you understand some of the very solid facts surrounding it including the base of the Roman column that you will see.

No booking required, however, please call ahead to check the tour is running that day. Free to National Trust members, small charge to none members. Admission and charge to the house not necessary to enjoy a cellar tour.

Opening details

Winter opening: Thursdays - Sundays 16 November - 17 December.


Free entry for National Trust members.
Gift aid price: Adult £8.00, child £4.00, family £20.00
