AS THE long winter nights draw in, Treasurer’s House in York will be throwing open its doors for a unique twilight experience.

Special candlelight tours full of chilling tales of deceitful deeds and spooky sightings will delve into the house’s ghostly past.

The historic National Trust property in Minster Yard is regularly cited as one of York’s most haunted houses and even has a register of ghostly goings-on, which details the eerie experiences of visitors and staff.

Visitor experience officer, Patty Kraus, said: “Treasurer’s House is always playing little tricks on us. Sometimes you just get a sense that there’s someone with you, a presence of some sort.

“Other times it’s all the little things that just make no sense and cannot be explained.”

Twilight tours are 45 minutes and take place on Saturday, October 27 at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. Booking is essential; see
