At the fine 17th and 18th century, Treasurers House in York, they are holding a couple of events in June that will allow guests to experience life “Upstairs and Downstairs”.
On 07 June 2009 they have an Attic Tour and tea.
A time capsule awaits visitors on a guided tour of the atmospheric servants' quarters, left empty and untouched for 80 years. Glimpse into the lives of the people who lived there, enjoy great rooftop views of the Minster Close, then return to the lower level of the house where the servants' workrooms were located and enjoy a traditional teatime treat in the historic tearooms.
On 21 June 2009 join the Butlers tour and Elevenses.
Allow the butler 'Downey' to welcome you to Treasurer's House for a fascinating insight into 'upstairs' and 'downstairs' in eccentric Yorkshireman Frank Green's Edwardian home. Followed by indulgent elevenses of unlimited freshly-brewed tea or coffee with home-made apple or cheese scones, cinnamon toast or crumpets and home-made preserves.
From 10.15 (45 minute tour) followed by elevenses.
