About Bodmin Jail
THE BRAND NEW £8.5 MILLION IMMERSIVE VISITOR ATTRACTION SEES THE INTRODUCTION OF A BRAND NEW ‘DARK WALK’ EXPERIENCE AND A COMPLETELY NEW LEVEL OF INTEREST INTERWOVEN THROUGHOUT THESE IMPRESSIVE BUILDINGS. 

Built in 1779 for King George III, Bodmin Jail has played an important role in Cornwall’s history and this bold redevelopment gives visitors the chance to delve into an intriguing hidden history. A massive investment in Cornwall’s tourism and visitor economy, this was the biggest attraction opening across the South West in 2020 with its state-of-the-art technology allowing for a more immersive experience.

THE ‘DARK WALK’, THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN CORNWALL, USES THEATRICAL EFFECTS AND THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY TO TRANSPORT VISITORS BACK TO CORNWALL’S MURKY PAST, ENABLING A FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE OF THE PENAL LIFE OF A WORKING 18TH AND 19TH-CENTURY PRISON ON THE FRINGES OF THE WINDSWEPT BODMIN MOOR.

Retold for 21st-century audiences, the haunting cinematic visual experience will tell stories of smuggling, mining and the everyday hardships facing Cornwall’s poorest, including tales from infamous prisoners.

Paranormal - Bodmin Jail offers a range of the spookiest paranormal tours and events in the UK, to give you an insight into the paranormal activity of some of the past residents of the jail.  Are you brave enough to spend a night 'inside' in the After Dark experience? Or is a scary movie within the depths of the jail more your thing?
