Tour Schedule 2014

Graycliff welcomes your visit. Enjoy what Frank Lloyd Wright referred to as the "repose" of Graycliff...the tranquility of a lovely estate on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie, with sweeping views to Canada beyond. Just a short 20 minute drive from downtown Buffalo, NY, Graycliff awaits your discovery.

Tours at Graycliff are docent-led, and begin in the M&T Pavilion.  There is ample free parking in front of the Pavilion. Graycliff tours are appropriate for ages 10 and up.

Reservations are necessary due to the limited space on all tours. Please call to reserve 716-947-9217 or email us to RSVP. In your email, please request the date and time of the tour you prefer.  We will confirm via email.  Please note that if you wish to reserve a tour less than 24 hours in advance, please call (not email) to reserve.  

The Basic Tour is handicapped accessible; we encourage those with any difficulty walking to reserve our covered golf cart.

If you are interested in Group or School tours, we are happy to arrange a special tour for you.
