Funding Partners

European Regional Development Fund

We have recently received a grant from the BIG2 Project; funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

This grant partly funds the new Courtroom Experience, part of the brand new 'Dark Walk' attraction due to open Summer 2020.

Once fully operational, the new attraction will create jobs for six new members of staff and offer a state of the art attraction for Cornwall, whilst retaining it’s history and atmosphere.

The 'Dark Walk' is a brand new immersive visitor experience, click here to discover more.


RDPE is the Rural Development Programme for England, a support investments on creation and development of non-agricultural activites-facilitating diversification, creation and development of small enterprises and job creation, fostering local development in rural areas.

A grant was received to support the project to create the new Berrycoombe Vale Car Park for the jail attraction, accommodating significantly increased projected visitor numbers through allowing adjacent parking and also enabling access for group visits and a coach turning point.  The new facility will host occasional public events at Hillside Park, Berrycombe Vale

The funding for this project came from the European agricultural fund for rural development.
