Discover the house at Greys Court

The Kitchen at Greys Court

From a Tudor show house to 20th-century family home, Greys Court has only been inhabited by five families in its long history. The mansion today is a patchwork of styles that hint at the various fortunes and tastes of the occupants.

Please note the house remains closed for now. Please check the front page of our website for the latest updates.

History of Greys Court

Find our more about the history of Greys Court with a talk by one of our volunteer experts. We usually have a talk at 11am and 12pm, and these are subject to availability.  The talks last for approximately 30 minutes, and tickets are avaliable from Vistor Reception on a first come, first served basis. 


From 1pm the house opens for free flow visiting, on both the ground floor and first floor levels. On busy days we may use timed tickets in this time as well. This is so that the intimacy of the small, family rooms is maintained and to give you the space to really enjoy them. Timed tickets are given out from Visitor Reception on a first come, first served basis. 


Please note that due to a lack of space, and the delicacy of some objects in the house, mobility scooters and pushchairs cannot be taken into the house. Greys Court has a wheelchair available for use by visitors, but this will need to be pre-booked in advance.
