  • It is free to enter. This house was built in 1580. The furnitures and decoration are protected in the original forms. The decorations of each rooms are different. You can see original oak panelling in the great oak room.
  • If you're interested in history or design or old houses or just in people, then you should visit this fascinating house. The whole building is interesting but the oak room is magnificent. An original oak panelled room from 1570. If there's a guide fella sat in the corner when you visit, ask him about the house and the room. The information he has to share with you will transform your visit and give you a new perspective on the city. The place is owned and managed by Bristol City Council and it's free to get in though donations are welcome. If you visit Bristol you should go, if you live in Bristol, why haven't you been?
