Bristol's Red Lodge
This 400 year old Elizabethan house can be visited. It was originally a lodge to the Great House where Queen Elizabeth stayed once. The Red Lodge is the last existing example of 16th century rooms in the city and home to some fine oak-panelled rooms, such as the Great Oak Room and the Small Oak Room. During the 18th century the house was modernised and from 1854 on it was used as the first girls' reform school in the county. The school was set up by Mary Carpenter, one of the rooms in the Lodge is dedicated to her memory. The seven rooms that can be visited reflect the history of the house. The rooms contain examples of Elizabethan and Georgian style interior design and there is an exhibition room which reminds of the time when the building served as a school.
There is also a Elizabethan-style walled knot garden on the grounds. The garden is accessible and features herbaceous borders and a replica of the pattern that can be seen on the lodge's bedroom ceiling. The plants in the garden are the same which would have been used in an English garden of the early 17th century.
Opening hours are from Saturday to Wednesday 10am to 17pm.
Admission is free.
