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.

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!

Not only free entry but very informative and beautifully presented. It feels like walking back to the Renaissance time.

This is a remarkably preserved Tudor wood-panel house. The staff are wonderfully informative, and this is a must visit for anyone interested in the history of the period.
