Attraction Information

  • Tourist Attractions icon Tourist Attractions

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Barley Hall is a stunning medieval house, once home to the Priors of Nostell and the Mayor of York.

Until the 1980s the house was hidden under the relatively modern facade of a derelict office block. Only when the building was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval building discovered and its history uncovered.

The building has now been lovingly restored to its original splendour with stunning high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames, and possibly the only horn window in England. It has been decorated to replicate what it would have looked like as the Snawsell home around 1483 and boasts a magnificent Great Hall. Visitors to Barley Hall can make themselves at home and we encourage them to sit on the chairs, handle the objects and experience what it would have been like to live in Medieval England.

Discover the exhibition ‘Power and Glory in the time of Henry VIII’, which allows visitors to discover the archaeology, first-hand accounts of life in the city, and the effects that this greatest of Tudor monarchs had on life in York during his thirty-eight year reign.
 
Plus, explore the complex relationships of court life in Tudor England, where love and politics mixed together creating chaos for the nation at their exclusive ‘Wolf Hall comes to York’ exhibition, including six sumptuous costumes from the hit BBC series Wolf Hall.
