Situated within 650 acres of parkland, Blaise Castle House Museum boasts beautiful rooms, galleries and collections that allow visitors to see how people lived through time.

Attractions include the domed glass ceiling of the restored Picture Room, a toy collection ranging from the 18th to 20th century featuring dolls houses, toy trains and the traditional Bristol pedlar doll, and a fashion collection consisting of around 10,000 pieces dating back to the 1730s.

Elsewhere, the Bristol at Home galleries offer insight into how daily life has changed over the last 300 years – from a time when dogs were used to help with cooking, to innovations in lighting and washing.

The wider Blaise Estate is also home to a dairy garden, cafe, play area and cricket pitch, among many other facilities.
