Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
An eerie reminder of the squalor in prisons during the 18th and 19th centuries, exhibits at Bodmin Jail have been likened to the London Dungeon. Much of the prison is in ruins, but sections are open to the public. See how an inmate may have lived during England's thriving Victorian age through the exhibits, which use mannequins dressed as prisoners inside the cramped cells. Before you try your courage in the cells with an evening "Ghost Walk," stop by the Witness Box Wine Bar or the on-site restaurant, which features local produce.
