Barley Hall is a stunning medieval townhouse, once home to a Lord Mayor of York.
Until the 1980s the house was hidden under the relatively modern façade of an office block. Only when the building was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval building discovered and its history revealed. Now lovingly restored to its original splendour, Barley Hall boasts stunning high ceilings, exposed timber frames, and fascinating exhibitions.
