About Bodmin Jail
Bodmin Jail Attraction is now closed until 1st October 2020. The jail is nearing the end of an on-going £40 million re-development and preservation project that will restore this important heritage asset to its former glory.
We welcome the introduction of the new immersive Dark Walk experience and an exciting complete re-design of the existing attraction space. This unique adventure will take guests on a journey back in time to see what life was like in the jail in the 18th and the 19th Century. You will receive an entertaining and informative history of the jail, meet some of its former inmates and see what conditions inside the jail were really like for the prisons. You will hear stories from highway robbers, smugglers, miners, and tales of the Beast of Bodmin. The experience explains how the prison was run behind the scenes too, with a trip to the Administration Block and the Governor's Office. Finally, visit a condemned cell and witness the only working execution pit in the country.
If you prefer a more close-up and personal account of the Jail's past join us for one of our historic heritage guided tours. For those visitors that are feeling brave, we dare you to visit the Jail at night for one of our Scary Cinema Nights or book a Paranormal Tour with our insightful Paranormal Manager. Further details and booking information can be found on our website.
Our new car park is a short stroll away, our passenger assistance vehicle can be organised when booking tickets. The re-development has now allowed the Jail to be fully accessible for all. If you would like any additional information to help you plan your visit, then our staff will be happy to help.
We estimate that your visit to Bodmin Jail will last approximately two hours. Due to the nature of the immersive experience we do not feel that it is appropriate for the welfare of dogs.
