Halloween at Bodmin Jail
As the veil between the world of the living and dead grows thinner, Bodmin jail is embracing all things Halloween.
Heritage Tours Go Darker -
The ‘Go Darker’ Heritage Tour will take you from the gallows to the grave and the anatomy table to the gibbet cage.

Walking with Witches Guided Tour -
Walk with us into the superstitious world of the 1600 and 1700s, from the court of James I to the burial of Cornish Joan Wytte's bones over three hundred years after her death. The first part of the evening will look at the facts and legality of the witch hunt times with an emphasis on the West Country persecutions and Bodmin Jail witches. The second part of the experience will focus on how our Paranormal team use witchcraft today to explore and unlock Bodmin Jail's past.

Victorian Séance -
This Halloween Bodmin Jail invites you to part the veil and take your place at our intimate, authentic Victorian séance. This unique evening will see our guests participate in Victorian spiritualism techniques including glass and table, ouija board and scrying before taking part in the first séance to be conducted in the original women’s wing of the prison for over 150 years. Begin the evening with an exclusive 3-course meal in The Chapel Restaurant before you are given unprecedented access to the prison and its spiritual energy. For the curious, the doubters, the believers and the aesthetes, this rare opportunity is not to be missed.
Date : 31 st October 2022
Times : 19:00pm – Midnight
All our Paranormal Tours are also running throughout Halloween -
