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.

Take a tour 

Take a turn through the history of Greys Court, starting in 1086 all the way through to 2003, on one of our house tours.

There are two opportunities to have a guided tour, one at 11am and one at 12pm. The tour lasts for about 45 minutes, and is of the ground floor rooms. Tickets are available first come, first served from Visitor Reception.


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. 


Some of the items in the house don't belong to National Trust which means we can't allow pictures to be taken inside the house because of copyright. Feel free to take as many pictures as you would like outside the house. 

Families visiting 

Get children to experience the house in a way they will enjoy by picking up one of our childrens guide books for the house. You can grab one from the entrance hall of the house when you first come in. 

Please remember that pushchairs aren't allowed in the house because of the space available.
