Directions to Red Lodge Museum

You could easily walk past this fantastic property without realising what lies behind the little red door. Apparently the original entrance was through the garden at the back, I imagine it was a much grander affair. Don't let the entrance fool you, behind the doors you will find a magnificent 16th century lodge built for a wealthy Bristol merchant. Three of the oak rooms remain pretty much as they were in Elizabethan times - one complete with an original, ornate, Bath stone fireplace. The Red Lodge has had several uses and from 1854 was used as a girls' reform school. Looking out of the upstairs window you will see one of the most unexpected features of the Red Lodge - an Elizabethan knot garden.

Expect to spend around an hour here. Why not combine this with a visit to the Georgian House museum just a ten minute walk away.

The Red Lodge is open from Easter until end October on selected days - please click on the website for opening times.

Please note the exhibits are on several floors and it may not be suitable for those who have mobility problems.

Entrance is free.
