Visitors to the Jail

Opening times

We are open 364 days a year for Jail Visits between 9:30am until 8pm for the exhibition. Our fully licensed Bar is open from 09:30, and the restaurant serves food from 10:30 am until 9pm.

Parking & Dogs

We have a FREE car park for our guests to use while you visit the Jail, and a ‘Dog Friendly’ attraction they can walk round; well behaved dogs are allowed in the Tea Room but not the Governors Hall Restaurant.


Regrettably, due to the constraints of the building, we are not a wheelchair-friendly venue, and those with impaired mobility may also find access to some areas difficult. We would recommend calling us in advance to discuss your requirements.
