Discover historic Barley Hall

About

Barley Hall is a stunning medieval townhouse, once home to the Priors of Nostell and a Lord Mayor of York. Until the 1980s the house was hidden under the relatively modern façade of a derelict office block. Only when the building was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval building discovered and its history revealed.

The building 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. It has been decorated to replicate what it would have looked like as the Snawsell home around 1483 and boasts a magnificent Great Hall.

Visitors to Barley Hall can make themselves at home, sit on the chairs, handle the objects and experience what it would have been like to live in medieval England.

Plus, Discover our new exhibition for June 2018: Magic & Mysterywhich explores the often fine line between science, religion and magic in medieval society.

Please note that Barley Hall is an historic building and features uneven floors, narrow stairs and steps between rooms. Facilities such as accessible toilets and a lift are unavailable due to the nature of the building.

Please call 01904 615505 to discuss your access requirements.
