Park Row

This historic Elizabethan house has been 'modernised' and restored several times thoughout its 400 year history. It began life as a Tudor lodge and was subsequently added to in Georgian times. Situated behind the Colston Hall and next to Trenchard car park, off Lodge Street, the Red Lodge on Park Row has a modest red stone exterior which belies the glorious interior.

Originally a lodge to the Great House where Queen Elizabeth I once stayed, the Red Lodge is often described as Bristol's 'hidden treasure'. It houses one of the city's greatest treasures: the Great Oak Room which can justly claim to be one of the finest rooms in the West Country.

The Red Lodge has had several uses in its past. It was once a reform school for girls!

This was set up in 1854 by the social reformer Mary Carpenter, and a room is dedicated to her memory.

The Great Oak Room is truly breath taking! As you step up the winding staircase and enter through the porch of the Great Oak Room, you will marvel at the magnificent oak panelling, the plasterwork ceiling and the magnificent carved stone chimneypiece - all of them original!

Open all year, Saturday to Wednesday (closed Thursday and Friday), 10am-5pm.

Originally a Tudor house. Contains fine oak-panelled rooms. .
