Summer garden at Greyfriars
The walled garden at Greyfriars pays homage to what stood before it - George's Yard, a row of 10 blindback houses, which were demolished in 1955 and recycled to create what is now a peaceful outdoor space, where you can escape from the busy streets of Worcester and enjoy those extra hours of summer sunshine.
There's always something new to see and our garden provides wonderful opportunities to witness dramatic seasonal changes right in the middle of the city. Throughout the summer we experience bursts of colour as we welcome the charming yellow begonia and see the red roses climbing the walls of the timber-framed house.
Our robinia tree seems to glow gold whatever the weather and the borders boast a variety of plants and flowers in full bloom, adding stunning shades of pink, purple, white and more, creating a haven for pollinators and other insects.
Lose yourself in the smells and sensations of this inner-city garden. Take a deep breath and relax on the garden terrace with a cuppa and a slice of homemade cake, or pack a picnic and find a sun-drenched piece of lawn or a shaded area under the trees.
Have a wander, play a garden game, search for our hidden geocache and enjoy summer in the city.
