The Great Oak Room

Come and see the last complete Elizabethan room in Bristol.

It took two whole years to put the Great Oak Room together! From 1578 to 1580 the top craftsmen of the day carved the oak, sculpted the stone and moulded the ceiling.

John Young, a merchant who had the lodge built, wanted to use the room to show off to other merchants so decorated it with exotic motifs of the age.

The room is displayed as it would have appeared in the 16th century, with oak furniture and beautiful portraits.
