Discover Barley Hall – A hidden medieval gem
Duck under wooden beams and venture down one of the oldest streets in York, and you’ll find Barley Hall. Once home to a Lord Mayor of York, Barley Hall is a medieval townhouse, restored and decorated, ready for a 15th-century feast. Little ones can make themselves at home, join in dress-up fun and activities in a Tudor School Room and experience what it would have been like to live in medieval England. Have fun exploring The Bard at Barley Hall exhibition – see costumes worn by celebrities such as Al Pacino and Kate Winslet. Have a go at shadow puppet theatre and guess the Shakespearean play from the smell box!
