Barley Hall is a picturesque medieval townhouse tucked away down one of the oldest streets in York. Once home to the Priors of Nostell and a Lord Mayor of York, Barley Hall has now been lovingly restored to its original splendour with stunning high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames, and possibly the only horn window in England. Visitors to Barley Hall can make themselves at home, sit on the chairs and experience what it would have been like to live in medieval England.
This July: Keep an eye out for the opening of the brand new Barley Hall Coffee Shop and Bard at Barley Hall exhibition.
Pre-booking online, or by calling 01904 615505, is advisable.
