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.

Not a big place like others but still worth a visit. Easily missed as only got small sign, will take you about 10-20 mins to walk around but still a lovely place.

This is like a mini National Trust property and a wonderful place to visit taking you back hundreds of years in time. Don't miss it.

This is a little known gem in the centre if Bristol. A wonderfully preserved Tudor house, beautifully presented and usually hardly any people in it. Fascinating house. Do go and see it!

This historic home is well worth a visit (and it's free). Beautiful old home and well worth a visit if you are in Bristol.
