Well worth finding this little gem behind the Minister. Very informative volunteers and beautifully decorated. Not very accessible as is what the norm for buildings of this age.

We found this house very close to the Minster. The house has been preserved just as if the family still lived there. Some of the room has some very interesting paintings and items which had been collected over many years. We visited the charming Tea...More

A small but interesting NT property located on the north side of the minster. Heavily altered in the early 20th century it is something of a folly as the owner sought to change three houses into a medieval mansion. Staff friendly. Won't take long to...More

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.
