Events and Experiences
All paranormal events are in darkness at some point with the exception of our Historical Jail Tour and Paranormal Tours which are held from 18:30-20:30pm.
Our events are not sleepovers and we do not provide areas to sleep. Our events are fast moving and interactive!
We encourage you to stay together during the tours and experiences. However, during breaks you are welcome to explore individually or in groups.
We try to keep the initial group together, however if there is a large number of people we will separate into two groups to allow a full experience.
Warmer clothes are advisable. We recommend you check the weather forecast in Bodmin prior to arriving. More clothes are better than not enough and we encourage layers.
Good sturdy footwear is recommended. Please no stilettos or open toed shoes or sandals.
You will be on your feet a lot.
You may bring your own smaller pieces of equipment to use on your breaks if desired. A torch with spare fully charged batteries. A mobile phone charger.
Cameras and voice recorders are allowed during your breaks or when you are exploring.
You may bring your own snacks or packed lunch. We have access to hot water.
No alcohol is permitted during the event and we have a strict no drug taking policy also. We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who appear intoxicated.
These are not experiences for the light hearted. It can be scary, enlightening, unpredictable and emotional. Many interactions can and will happen.
This is impossible to answer as the whole jail is paranormally active. It is unpredictable and all areas of the jail are subject to activity.
We will give you a great insight into the paranormal world at Bodmin Jail in a factual and entertaining way. Genuine paranormal activity happens on a regular basis – nothing is made up for entertainment.
No! We work hard to ensure attachments or deep connections with spirits or entities do not happen. You will only take home what you brought with you!
