Barley Hall
In Coffee Yard

Barley Hall Barley Hall is a medieval town-house hidden away down the tiny Coffee Yard, off Stonegate. It was originally built as the York Mansion of the Priors of Nostell Priory (West Yorks) in 1360. Neglected over the centuries, it has now been fully restored to its original state and fitted out with medieval style furniture and hangings by the York Archaeological Trust.

Find out what life was really like back in the Middle Ages as an evocative audio-tour helps you step back in time to 1483 when the house was leased by Alderman William Snawsell, goldsmith and sometime Lord Mayor of the city.
