Situated at the heart of Worcester’s historic centre, Greyfriars House and Garden makes the perfect location for a group visit, whether you are visiting Worcester for the week, the day, or just passing through.

Greyfriars provides an intimate glimpse into the tumultuous history of the building and the people who lived and worked at there, complementing the varied history of Friar Street, which today is still full of local history and independent businesses.

Group Visits

At Greyfriars we welcome group visits from March to December, Tuesday to Saturday, not including bank holiday weekends. Access to the house is via guided tour. We recommend that group visits usually last around 2 hours. We advise that any groups of 6 or more call in advance the week of their visit to ensure the availability of our tours. We do not accept group bookings of over 30 people.

In order to ensure we provide the best possible experience for you and your group we ask that all coach trips and groups over 10 people book in advance by contacting the team at to request a group booking form.

The Old Oak Café is open 10.00 to 16.00, Tuesday to Saturday, serving a range of hot and cold drinks, light bites, lunches, and baked goods. We ask that large groups stagger their lunch times for the comfort of everyone or group seating can be provided by prior arrangement.

For coach and large group visits please be aware that all seating, food, and drink in the café is on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to use the café and would like to guarantee seating or would like to enquire about refreshment options, please speak to a member of the Greyfriars team.

If you need to bring a carer or an essential companion to accompany you on your visit you can apply for an essential companion card through the National Trust free of charge. Access for everyone | National Trust

On the day

Please be aware there is no onsite carparking, see our getting here information on the homepage. The closest coach drop off is on City Walls Road (5 minutes walk). Please arrive at visitor reception (located at No.14 opposite the main house) on time; we advise arriving at least 5 minutes before your visit starts. Due to the nature of the late-medieval property there are uneven surfaces and steps throughout, and access to the upper floor of the house is via an 18th century staircase. We ask that you keep this in mind when planning your visit.
