Greys Court Mansion

Offering a variety of grand living styles over the centuries and lived in by only five families up until recent times, Greys Court is a 1950s home with historic roots and connections to key moments in history.

This makes it a great place for your group to learn about lots of different periods in history and how the families that lived here designed the gardens and managed the woodlands that became such important parts of their daily lives.

Activities
