I went on the paranormal activities event, it was absolutely brilliant. The amount of activity in the jail was well beyond expectations, and the guides were so knowledgeable and just plain great at doing what they do. Highly recommend!
This was a fabulous day out. Great Heritage tour hosted by Bex who was funny and amazingly knowledgeable. It was so interesting and informative along with being fun in a macabre kind of way. If you’re in the area then this is a must!
Wow, what a great experience. After reading online reviews we had high hopes. Staff were super friendly, The Dark walk was incredible and a great surprise. The jail was fantastically eery and educational.
