Bodmin Jail has been recognised by Tripadvisor as a 2023 Travellers’ Choice award winner for attractions.

The coveted award celebrates businesses that have consistently received great reviews over the last 12 months, placing Bodmin Jail Museum among the top 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor globally.

“We are absolutely thrilled and humbled to have been recognised in this way,” said Jessica Marlton, General Manager of Bodmin Jail. “Thank you to the whole team for all your efforts, for providing excellent customer service and for your passion for this incredible building.”

Bodmin Jail Museum operated as a working prison from the late 1700s, before falling into disrepair in the twentieth century. It was completely renovated and transformed into a stunning immersive attraction and luxury hotel in 2020, maintaining many of the original features and capturing the history. 

“Congratulations to Bodmin Jail for being recognised as 2023 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice winners,” said John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor. “The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened competition. Earning a Travellers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests. With changing expectations, continued staffing challenges, and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year!”

2023 has been a bumper year for the Museum, with thousands visiting the £8.5 million attraction for family entertainment, heritage tours and paranormal events.

“And thank you to each and every customer who has taken the time to visit us and share their experience with others,” continued Jess. “You have made our year and we can't wait to welcome you to the Bodmin Jail Museum for another 12 months of history, fun and discovery.”
