It is a beautiful house with a fantastic main room from the period of Elisabeth I. Not too big, quiet and in the centre. For free. They have description in many different languages. Check the opening period - it is only in summer.

Very interesting, an oasis in a busy part of the city of Bristol. As it costs nothing to go in.... Its a no brainer.

We chose to take the exhaustingly steep hill to the Red Lodge. And we really only arrived there by accident as we had become very lost. It is stunning. The outside doesn't prepare you for the beauty inside, and the guides were so very helpful....More
