Treasurer's House, Chris Lacey


The air in the cellar of the Treasurer’s House has a definite chill – possibly for its reputation as one of the most famous haunted sites in York. In 1953, Harry Martindale saw Roman soldiers – but only from the torso up – marching through the cellar. Nowadays, visitors can enjoy hard-hat tours into the deepest part of the house, or pop in for refreshments at the recently refurnished Below Stairs Café.

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.
