Treasurer's House York

Surrounded by a walled garden Treasurer's House is one of the city's most beautiful buildings dating from 1620 and only a stones throw from York Minster, it was the first house ever given to the National Trust. Treasurer's House has a history spanning something like 2,000 years, from the Roman road down in the cellar to Edwardian times. There is also a collection of antique furniture and many textiles and paintings, and of course there's the ghost's, the cellar's full of the ghosts of Roman Legionnaires marching about the place, but you will only be able to see them from the knees up so we are told, and the reason for that is because the house was built on the site of the Roman road, down there in the cellar.
