This is a lovely look into history and is free to wander around the gardens. There are other places that you can see the interior of free, but the gardens here are very nice!

Not an elaborate hose filled with bric-a-brac but interesting recycled articles and a facinating history over it's 600 year history. The house bears the scars of constant changes of use. Do take the tour as the guide is very knowledgable and informative.

One of a number of old houses on Friar St. Well worth the visit (its free) and the volunteers make the experience with their enthusiasm and knowledge. Was lived in until relatively recently (early 1900's) which must have interesting. Only fires for heating. Also a...More

Small, pretty and interesting National Trust property in centre of Worcester. A delightful break from shopping transporting you into a different world.

Beautiful house to have a wonder around. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and were happy to tell you all about the place. In the first room, John sat us down and explained an in-depth history of the house. Each room you go into there's someone...More

Interesting house, to think it could have been demolished! Were we given an informative tour by Colin. Well worth a visit. All the house and tea room staff were polite but the gardening lady was rude when our group tried to take a walk in...More

I would have liked more information about the individual workers' cottages. Rather put off spending too much time inside by a volunteer guide droning on and on to an equally boring visitor. For my money, if you only have time to see one place in...More

This national trust property is in a winding street in Worcester and it has a small entrance which you could easily miss. What is fascinating is that the house was moved in for hundreds of years with little change. You can imagine the merchant who...More

A National Trust property, get there when it opens for an interesting tour. Greyfriars was built in 1480 by a wealthy merchant, it became a home to wealthy families up until the 17th century and in 1699 a baker purchased the lease and divided the house into two.  It...More

History of house is very interesting. It is best to do the guided tour as you learn about the four families who lived there at different times.

It's best to take the guided tour, which is around 30 mins and then wander back on your own and spend 15-20 mins having a more detailed look round, so around an hour. For the weather is good it's nice to sit in the garden... More

Grey Friars in Worcester is open most days but is staffed entirely by a happy, enthusiastic team of volunteers and it's closed on Sundays and Mondays. I think the usual opening times are 11am to 5pm. It is a lovely setting... More
