Baron Grimston of Westbury, of Westbury in the County of Wiltshire, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created in 1964 for the Conservative politician and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Robert Grimston, 1st Baronet. He had already been created a baronet in 1952.[2] Grimston was the son of Reverend Canon the Hon. Robert Grimston, third son of James Grimston, 2nd Earl of Verulam. As of 2017 the titles are held by his grandson, the third Baron, who succeeded his father in 2003.

As a descendant of the second Earl of Verulam he is also in remainder to this peerage and its subsidiary titles. The barony of Grimston of Westbury was one of the last hereditary baronies created in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.
