Treasurer's House Garden
Chapter House Street


The Treasurer's House is a National Trust property in central York. It has two very different gardens, tucked away in a secluded, peaceful area behind York Minster. The Treasurer's House front garden has plenty of benches from which to admire the simple, architectural design laid out in 1900 by the owner, Frank Green. The terrace walls contain architectural fragments from the many re-buildings of the Minster and visitors to the garden can enjoy full views of the striking Minster Chapter House.

The Organic Herb Garden, to the rear of the 17th century house will delight with its sights and smells.


There are toilets, a tearoom and art gallery in the house. Admission is free to these facilities. See the Treasurer's House website for admission charges to view the house.


Various community events are held in the Herb Garden and the Treasurer's House front garden is a popular venue for civil ceremonies or private functions when not open to the public.


The Treasurer's House front garden is open every day except for Fridays, between 11am and 4.30pm, from mid-March to the end of October.

The herb garden is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays between 11am and 4.30pm, from May to September.

The gardens are accessible to wheelchairs and admission is free.
