|About these ratings|
Greystone is one of the largest mansions in Beverly Hills and an important landmark for American cinema. Originally built by oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny in 1927 as a gift to his son, Ned, Greystone now represents a golden age in American cinema. Many films, including "The Bodyguard," and television shows, including "Revenge" and "Gilmore Girls," have been shot on these gothic-inspired grounds.
Today, the interior of the mansion is closed, but visitors are free to walk around the property. Many recent visitors call Greystone a "hidden gem" within L.A., saying that it offers respite from the city's hustle and bustle. Travelers describe the park grounds as spectacular, with expertly manicured lawns, a variety of flowers, artful fountains and even a koi pond.
The grounds are open to the public every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours in the summer. There is no admission fee, and free on-site parking is available. For more information, visit the Greystone Mansion and Park website.
