A warm welcome since 1091

One of the most historic buildings in England; Grays Court is the oldest inhabited house in York. Witness to political favours courted by medieval Minster Treasurers and three royal visits, the building provided home and sanctuary to the illustrious Gray family for two hundred years. 

Helen Heraty and John Edwards bought Grays Court in 2005 as a business and home for their seven children. They have restored beautiful Grays Court with great care and respect, and Helen now opens the doors for your enjoyment.
