Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate Bristol


Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate features a 19th century mansion, set in 400 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.

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 Picture Room

The magnificent Picture Room at Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate is hung with paintings from the museum's collections and is licensed for civil ceremonies.
