The gardens at Greys Court

The gardens at Greys Court were virtually derelict when the Brunner family arrived in 1937. Lady Brunner in particular was keen to make a haven of tranquillity, which she wished to share with visitors. Why not come and be inspired by this garden, or take some quiet time to reflect?

Please note that there is currently a one way system to enable social distancing through the walled gardens. The one-way system will bring you through the main areas of the gardens, however some areas, such as the anniversary walk, remain closed for now.

Kitchen garden

The kitchen garden has its roots in the Second World War Dig for Victory campaign. It's just as productive today thanks to the work of our gardening team and army of volunteers.

Wisteria walk

Planted in the 1890s by the Stapletons, the gnarled, twisted wisteria is an early summer spectacle and a highlight for many visitors.

Rose garden

The rose garden traces the history of the rose from the early damask varieties to the modern hybrid perennials. Enjoy an almost overwhelming fragrance as you stroll along the meandering paths.
