What secrets lie behind the bright red door? Step inside the TARDIS and experience more than 400 years of history in the museum where you feel you have left the modern world behind. From 'royal party house' of the 16th Century to Victorian reform school for girls, see how the lodge has changed over time.

Nice house with about six rooms to see. The main house is from the 1500s, and some very interesting details remain. Docents upstairs and downstairs were extremely well informed and anxious to talk. We learned interesting details about the history of a painting of Queen...More

This is the only true Elizabethan house remaining in Bristol.The ground floor was gutted and "updated" in the 18th century (the urge to renovate has always been with us) and is an attractive enough typical Georgian house, but go up the stairs and you go...More

If you like your history, please visit this jewel of a house which dates back to Elizabeth I. The furnishing and wood panellings are something to behold. The staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their subject. And all this is for free!!! Would highly recommend!
