Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate Bristol


Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate features an 18th century mansion, set in 650 acres of parkland, and is home to the social history collection. Discover everyday objects from centuries past, including Victorian toilets and baths, kitchen and laundry equipment, model trains, dolls, toys and period costume in the museum.

You can also explore the parkland and woodlands, as well as enjoying the cafe whilst the kids head off to the children’s adventure playground. Toilets (including a disabled toilet) and baby changing facilities are available).

The Castle

The folly castle, as featured in Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, is opened by volunteers on some summer Sundays. Just look out for the flag flying on top of the castle and enjoy panoramic views of the area from the castle roof.

The Museum

See how people lived through time - what they wore, the toys they played with and how they managed their household chores. Find out about the history of the house, the landscaping of its estate and enjoy the beautiful Picture Room. The magnificent Picture Room is hung with paintings from the museum's collections and is licensed for civil ceremonies. 

Parking costs £1 for 1 hour; £2 for 2 hours and £3 for 5 hours.

      Staff were very friendly. Quite a quirky selection of exhibits, including a scold’s bridle. Not worth a special trip, but do pop in if you are already on the estate. Good shop too - bought a football... Read full review
