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

What a wonderful little museum. I visited the Red Lodge a few weeks ago and really enjoyed the experience. It is such a fascinating place with a real historic atmosphere. 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.

This is such a beautiful little historic house tucked away in the city. As it is closed for a large part of the year it somewhere that seems somewhat forgotten about. However inside the wooden panels and the decoration is stunning and worth visiting especially for those who are interested in Tudor history as the house has over 400 years... More

Looking at all the other reviews, I'm clearly in a minority here but I feel that the City Council undervalues what is a beautiful and historically interesting property, makes no serious attempt to promote it nor to put it into context. Its interior is sparse and lacking in the sort of items that would have been present and those that... More
