A National Trust property, the Treasurers House is well worth visiting. You feel that you're travelling through time in the various rooms, even though they are all the work of one owner. Knowledgeable friendly staff make the visit even more interesting.

The Treasurers House is next to the Cathedral. It is owned by the National Trust so free for members. It was interesting but the building and decor was dark and gloomy, not their usual grand houses.

Right next to the Minster, tucked aside on cobblestone road with lots and lots of character. The staff feed your imagination with ghost stories and historical information alike. To me, it looks like a wizard's house. A very posh wizard, but a wizard nonetheless.

not sure I could get my head around all the alterations and changes over the centuries and decades, but the home of an industrealist, who invented a way to improve the performance of the steam engine, probably made the greatest changes, as many Victorians did........More

This a nice small NT propery. It is fairly compact and on three floors with a garden/courtyard. There are helpfull and enthusiastic guides throughout who are happy to answer questions. There is a cafeteria in the basement as well as toilets.

An interesting house which has undergone many extensive transformations to make it what it is today. In the city centre next to the Minster so very easy to find and free to National Trust members.
