Step back in time as you squeeze into this 15th century hall house.


One of Bristol’s oldest domestic buildings, Elsie Briggs house is a remarkable architectural survival and a hidden treasure in the city.


The whole house is open to visitors, including a view of some of the roof trusses. Climb the twisted stairs and admire the huge stone fireplace.
