Possibly the oldest continuously occupied house in Britain, Grays Court’s history started in Norman times when Archbishop Thomas of Bayeux assigned it to the Minster’s treasurer. After the Reformation, the house passed through the hands of many illustrious residents, including the Seymour family, Lord Fairfax, and the Gray family. Based at the King’s Manor, this course will study the ‘biography’ of this remarkable building through which the whole history of York can be unveiled and will finish with a visit to the Court’s courtyard and gardens.
