Visitor Information

We are open 364 days a year for Jail Visits between 09:30am until 5pm. Our fully licensed Bar is open from 09:30, and the restaurant serves food from 10:30 am until 5pm.

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; all we ask is that you make alternative responsible arrangements for your dog whilst you use our restaurant or wine bar; dogs are NOT permitted to stay in either. We have an outside eating area they are welcome in. Sadly a few irresponsible dog owners have spoilt it for the majority.

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 discus your requirements

All are welcome at Bodmin Jail – come and enjoy a walk round the outside of the Jail, see the only working execution pit in the UK, and our stables artefacts and film room without charge. For a more in depth look, and to experience our visitor attraction, please see the prices below. All funds generated at the Jail go to the renovation of this important historic building.
