Greyfriars (Worcester)

Greyfriars is a very attractive house in the historic cathedral city of Worcester.

It is situated in Friar Street which, together with its continuation New Street, has a very fine collection of attractive, mostly timber-framed, houses. Almost opposite is the splendid folk museum known as the Tudor House.

The house is entered through an archway into a courtyard.

Greyfriars was originally the gatehouse of the Greyfriars friary, and built about 1480, with 17th century and 18th century additions. The Grey Friars were Franciscans, and established their friary in Worcester in 1239.

The house was saved from demolition in 1943. It is now in the care of the National Trust, and is open to the public.
