Trade and Coach Tours

We would love to welcome your group to the new Bodmin Jail attraction. Please note that due to government restrictions relating to the spread of Covid-19, we have reduced the capacity going through the attraction at any one time, so your group may be split into smaller groups to ensure social distancing.

Please contact us to discuss your group’s needs and interests, and we will do our very best to accommodate.  Please be sure that you have reserved your place with us before you advertise dates or start selling seats.

Tickets are available to be pre-booked now.
