  • We enjoyed our tour. Guides to be applauded though a clearer understanding of its history would have been appreciated.

  • What a revelation, from a small entrance off a cobbled street behind York Minster to a large house that was originally 3! Complete with banqueting Hall, concealed doors, sumptuous bedrooms and chandeliers. The tour was very informative with lots of history about Mr Green who donated the house and its treasures to the National Trust
  • This is a fascinating building, full of character and interest. There is a lot to see but you need to be able to go up stairs. The garden was good with good views of the house and the Minster. I gave 4 stars as you could only visit by guided tour, which meant you could not have a good look at some things. Hopefully one day you can visit without a tour. I understand the need for this but is still a shame.
