The Original Lodge

The Original Lodge is made up of three rooms which show the lodge as it originally was in 1580.

You’ll find a grand Elizabethan four-poster bed, wood panelling and sturdy oak furniture. There’s also a painting which might just be the earliest portrait of a slave in the UK.

These rooms, including The Great Oak Room, are three of the oldest rooms in Bristol. Make sure you look up at the ceilings – some of the designs inspired the Knot Garden you’ll see through the window.
