Treasurer's House, York
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Don't go down to the cellars alone! Legend has it that when workmen were repairing the cellars, they saw a frightening apparition of a group of Roman legionnaries marching past. The ghosts were only visible above the knees, as if their lower legs were cut off. Excavations later revealed that a Roman road ran beneath the cellar floor, just where the ghostly legionnaries were marching.
Treasurer's House is like an oasis of peace compared to the nearby Minster with its hordes of tourists. The gardens are a wonderful, peaceful space around a central greeen. The house is a fascinating study in time periods, with furnishings running the gamut from medieval to Georgian.
