After my visit to the Minster I continued my walk around York. This building is called St William’s College. It dates back to the 15th century when it was the home of chantry priests. It is now a tea room.
I then visited Treasurer’s House. A property now run by the National Trust, it was originally the home to the treasurers of York Minster. It was last owned by a wealthy industrialist called Frank Green, who filled the house with an extensive collection of antiques and furniture before bequeathing the house and its contents to the Trust.
Following this walk I returned to the Minster for Evensong, then I went to an Indian restaurant called Mumbai Lounge for dinner. That was the end of my first day in York.
