We’ll break your hearts, not your necks with the ‘Broken Hearts’ tour this February.

Bodmin Jail invites you to celebrate an alternative Valentine’s month with the ‘Broken Hearts’ tour. The award-winning Heritage Guides will entice you with a Danse Macabre through historical tales of the love-lorn and crimes of the heart.

This dark romantic romp will whisk you into the Victorian and Georgian world of marital poisonings, betrayed lovers, murderous couples and heart-rendering hangings. We’d like to say that they all lived happily-ever-after, but the course of true love never ran that smoothly.  Join us this February for the ‘Broken Hearts’ tour and step into the dark side of love.

You can meet our amazing Heritage Team here
