We visited the Red Lodge on a Saturday during the Olympics so it was pretty quiet. Starting at the top we were wandering round when one of the guides started chatting to us. And we're so glad she did! Sorry to say that I can't...More

I was walking through Bristol, towards Queen's Road, when I noticed this building on my left, with a very red door. I am glad I went in as I enjoyed the view of some beautiful rooms, whose detail and magneficence are incredible. Very good flooring,...More

A red door in an small and rather ugly entrance building looks uninviting, but it leads to a fascinating suite of Elizabethan and Georgian rooms, some of which are quite magnificent. The lodge was built in 1580 as the lodge for a large house that,...More

Not much to look at from the outside but once inside the upstairs main room has beautiful old wood pannelling and a massive fireplace. Free admission as well.
