This is one of two (The Georgian House) which have become a bit of an embarrassment to the City Council. They are attractive examples of Georgian and earlier town houses but are not connected to other museums to give them support. A clear need for volunteer operation but not, apparently under current management. Well worth a detour. Just how early... More

This won't take you much more than an hour to visit, but it's wonderful inside as is the beautiful fireplace. We like to visit regularly as its home to the "Bristol Savages" which are a group of Bristol artists and as my husband's father and grand father were well known artists here we are privileged to see some of their...

This house served many purposes and some of the furnishings Are very interesting. One of the purposes of the building was that it was a former Reform school for girls

This lodge has the only original Elizabethan interiors left in Bristol - the oak room is covered in wooden panelling the detailed oak carving is amazing, there's also a massive... More

The Red Lodge is worth a visit just for the Elizabethan panelling alone in the room upstairs - an amazing historical relic! There are some nice features and the chap who was working when we visited on Saturday was very informative and helpful, highly recommend for 30-45 mins of your time.

The Tudor rooms in the Red Lodge are beautifully preserved; plaster ceiling and oak panelling are outstanding. The staff are helpful and keen to promote this jewel in the middle of Bristol. Make time to visit.
