Bodmin: Bodmin Jail Entry Ticket & Dark Walk

1. Bodmin: Bodmin Jail Entry Ticket & Dark Walk

Step into the past with skip-the-line entry to the Bodmin Jail in Cornwall where over 55 executions took place. Uncover the dark history of this haunted site built by King George III and explore the recently renovated wings and cells. Feel the cold against your skin as you walk down the Naval Wing. Travel just outside the town center to find Bodmin Jail and marvel at its imposing structure on the skyline as you reach the entrance. Count yourself lucky as you walk into the prison as a visitor and not as an inmate. Face a cold walk along the original Naval Wing and get a first-hand impression of what the dreary days and nights behind bars were really like. Look into grimy cells and listen to stories of prison punishments. Learn about the tragedies within these walls and the tales of the criminals who called Bodmin Jail home. Exit the prison after seeing the only original and fully working Victorian hanging pit in the United Kingdom.

Search for deals. We got in at a very good price. Such a shame this attraction wasn't available at this standard when our children were young. Nonetheless as pensioners we found it fantastic. Once you've finished the attraction make sure you ask to go in and visit one of the hotel rooms attached. In each case 3 cells knocked into one to make a tremendous luxury room, with baths in most cases. Brilliant.

The Dark Walk was amazing. Very informative and something different. The whole thing was a great learning experience

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Took our old teenagers for something a bit different and they had a good time too.

fantastic experience although restaurant staff a bit blunt but food was good!

Absolutely brilliant experience, highly recommend a visit there
