Missed out on a visit to this fabulous house on my recent visit to Bristol, as it's seasonal opening times - April to September. It's a must see attraction if you're into history and architecture - I loved it and want to see it again.

A restored Georgian house that's worth visiting. Tucked away on Great George Street, it's a short 4-minute walk from the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. There are knowledgeable docents throughout the house that answered all our questions and gave us even more insight into what...More

Admission is free ... However I think maybe you can leave a donation or buy items if you wish, but certainly not compulsory.
