#2 of 7 in Wildlife in Bristol
Peek into a day in the life of 18th-century England at Blaise Castle House Museum, which preserves the lifestyle, art, clothing, and toys of the estate's former inhabitants. Housed in an 18th-century Georgian residence that was once inhabited by English nobility and their servants, the museum shows visitors what people wore, what toys children played with, what the schooling was like, and how the cooking and cleaning got done. You'll also learn about the history of the house and estate. After touring the museum, move on to the grounds to explore the 18th-century Gothic castle that was the foundation of the estate.

  • Small but interesting museum. And the grounds are fantastic!
  • An interesting visit - small Museum - of day to day artifacts - well worth a visit. Then take a walk around the grounds. Big Carpark -
  • An excellent collection. Worth at least an hour and lots for children.
  • This place is great for a day out with the family with no cost. Plenty of open space for relaxing, lots of people's having bbq's and with 2 parks for the kids and a cafe everyone is happy. Plenty off places to explore with nice walks through the forest and a museum in the house. Already have a fun day out here.
  • Nothing special, but good addition to Blaise Park. Inside you can find exposition with old household units and old school clothes.
