Well worth a visit. The exterior and garden are stunning. The interior is a funny old mixture of periods and style courtesy of the late-nineteenth century owner, but very interesting. Sweet guide in the main room, brimming with enthusiasm.

You can purchase on line. I highly recommend if you are going to visit several attractions getting the one day York city pass from the visit York tourism shop by the Minster. Will save you money. Only good for the day.
