Greyfriars House and Garden

History & Heritage

Greyfriars House and Garden

Greyfriars House and Garden is a late medieval merchant’s house, rescued from demolition, in Worcester city centre.

Built in the 1490s in the heart of Worcester, Greyfriars has been the home of local gentry, shopkeepers, merchants and even a publican. Discover a taster of our top ten items in the collection, many of which have been salvaged and restored by Elsie and Matley Moore.

We love our second-hand bookshop at Greyfriars and our dedicated bookshop volunteer does a fantastic job of sorting and presenting the eclectic mix of titles donated to us.

Understated and charming, the second-hand bookshop at Greyfriars is always decorated with a display or theme for visitors to take inspiration from while they browse, and the shop is perfectly situated within our walled garden.

Enjoy delicious homemade scones and browse our National Trust shop for the perfect gift.
