Spring awakens at Grey’s Court, Henley-on-Thames

After what feels like a long few months of Winter, the sunshine finally makes an appearance as we turn our clocks forward for British Summertime.

Today we ventured to Greys Court to visit the Tudor house and its idyllic grounds that are sprinkled with colourful spring flowers.

In 1937, Sir Felix Brunner bought this house and transformed it into the home you see today. This home features a patchwork of different styles which highlights the interests and tastes of the styles of the occupants throughout the mid 20th century.

Around the grounds are walking paths (which vary from around 1.2km3km) throughout the green woodlands. Between mid-April and late-May, this ground will be coated in blue bells which is well worth a visit!

Currently, beautiful blooms of hyacinths of all colours are scattered around the gardens.

And what a cute way to show off the potted plants!
