The Red Lodge (c.1580) is one of many museums in Bristol that offer free entrance. Upon arriving you see the wonderful garden. Inside the house is interesting but a bit dark. The Great Oak Room, with its fantastic wood carvings, is the highlight of this house.

the herb gardens as you walk in to this museum are really beautiful and smell amazing- the house itself has so many wonderful pieces of furniture from different eras and the newly discovered well is really cool. A nice thing to drop into when youre in this part of town for half an hour of history

It's unusual to see rooms from this early in situ. Amazing paneling. If you see this museum along with the Georgian House, you will get an understanding of how life changed. Informative staff and lovely garden.

What a beautiful house! Dating back to Tudor times, this fantastically preserved house deserves a visit. The rooms are filled with intricately carved dark wood cabinets, chairs/tables and has wonderful ornate fireplaces. The welcome is friendly and informative and the whole place is steeped in history. To imagine all the changes over the years was really fascinating. Look out for the well in one of the rooms. It has been cleverly covered with strong glass, so you can stand on it and look down into the water 40ft below!! Not for the faint hearted!! We found the house a little difficult to locate, but there is a big red sign on the side of the house once you get near it! Highly recommended for a fascinating experience AND it's free - donations welcome, of course!

A great place to pop into whilst in town. Beautiful wood work and helpful staff. Free museum which doesn't take long to wander round.
Written and visual information available.
An interesting well has been exposed and you can walk on top on it (over glass).
