Right in the middle of town, near the York Castle Museum, this house displays a beautiful collection of Georgian furniture and clocks. The ceilings give away hints as to what each room was used for, for example, there were carvings of Shakespeare in the library. Volunteers were in every room and gladly told me all about the fascinating furniture as well as the history of the family who lived here. Had a great chat with all of them, all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I was there as a gap year student and therefore didn't have any student ID to receive a discounted price but they considered me a student anyway, so was very impressed by how lovely the people were. For anyone interested in clocks, there were some in there from the 17th century! They also have an exhibition which changes regularly.
