Home to York Minster's medieval treasurers, the Treasurer's House was substantially rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries. The 13 rooms house a fine collection of furniture and provide a clear insight into 18th-century life. The house is also the setting for one of the city's most enduring ghost stories: during the 1950s a plumber working in the basement swore he saw a band of Roman soldiers walking through the walls. His story remains popular, if unproven, and you can explore the cellar to find out for yourself.
