Member Events & Trips


Member Mornings

Enjoy a quiet start to your day and catch the morning light at GFS before the general public is admitted. At GFS, we believe visiting an oasis of beauty, where art and imaginatively landscaped gardens awaken the senses, enhances well-being and stimulates reflection. On Member Mornings, members are granted exclusive early access to the grounds at 8 AM and may stay as long as they wish. To ensure capacity is safely managed at GFS, Members and Guest Passes require a free reservation to visit.
