4/5 based on 85 reviews on the web
Located in the heart of historic market town of Buckingham, the iconic Old Gaol was built in 1748 in the style of a castle, with later additions in 1839 by the famous local architect George Gilbert Scott. It is one of the key visitor attractions of Buckingham.

The purpose-built prison is now a museum, a tourist information centre, a gift shop, a second hand bookstore and a unique venue to hire.
