What to expect on your visit to Greys Court

Summer in the garden at Greys Court

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to visit Greys Court and enjoy the gardens and nature we’ve all missed. To ensure the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers and local communities, we’ve reduced the number of people we can welcome at one time and have introduced a booking system.

We’ve made some changes so your visit will be a bit different to what you’re used to. We need your help to enable us to keep Greys Court open safely, so we’d be grateful if you could follow the guidance below:

When you arrive

A staff member will greet you on the drive way. Please have your tickets ready to show our staff through your car window. If you’re a member, you’ll also need to show your membership card.

In order to maintain social distancing, please arrive within your timeslot. Sadly, if you arrive late, we won't be able to guarantee you entry. If you arrive very early for your slot, you may be asked to come back later. Your entry will be at the discretion of the property staff and will be based on visitor numbers and the ability to maintain social distancing.

Those without a pre-booked ticket will be asked to turn around by staff. You will need a pre-booked ticket for each person over 5 years old.

Please book ahead before visiting

The gardens, estate and car park at Greys Court will reopen from 15 June and you’ll need to book your tickets by 3.00pm the day ​before your visit. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. We'll be releasing ​tickets every Friday.​ Please note we’ll be turning people away who arrive and haven't booked. ​We're looking forward to welcoming you back.

During your visit

Please look out for new signage on property and follow the one-way route around the walled gardens.

There are maps available to help you find your way around. Please note the site closes at 5pm, so please ensure you have enough time to complete your walk or admire the gardens.

The toilets will be open and cleaned regularly. Please follow signage, maintain social distancing and should there be a queue, wait two metres apart.

The mansion, tea-room, shop and children's play area remain closed.

Access

Please note our accessible parking by the house is not currently available, however there is accessible parking in the main car park, 220 yards from property.

There is an adapted toilet in the toilet block with baby-changing facilities. Full access information is available on the front page of our website under 'Facilties and Access'.

Dogs

Dogs on leads are welcome on the wider estate but are not permitted in the walled gardens. Please note there is currently livestock in the fields on the estate walks, so please follow countryside code when walking in these areas. 

Picnics

There are plenty of spots to have a picnic on the estate, and a favourite spot is the front lawn overlooking the Chiltern hills. We ask that people do not picnic in the walled gardens or on the oval lawn, and please take your rubbish home with you and dispose of it responsibily.

To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you’ve been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back. We’ve worked hard to reopen our places, and we want to keep them open. But we’re all in this together and we need your help to enable us to keep places open safely. We look forward to seeing you.
