Bodmin Jail MemorabiliaRead more ...
Bodmin Jail, one of Cornwall’s most loved historical attractions and Cornwall’s former County Gaol, will close its doors for a 6-month period from 4th November 2019 to allow for construction to finish on the on-going £40 million re-development and preservation project that is set to restore this important heritage asset to its former glory.
The current visitor attraction will close its doors from Monday 4th November, with the restaurant and gift shop remaining open for diners and pre-booked events only until 1st December 2019. During the closure, all special events, including all After Dark Paranormal Events, will be suspended, returning with a new lease of life in May 2020.
On Sunday 3rd November the Jail invites locals and enthusiasts to join them for a Charity Open Day with FREE entry for all to raise funds for the Jail’s chosen charity, Cornwall Hospice Care. Visitors will get a chance to say goodbye to the current attraction, as well as the opportunity to own a piece of Bodmin Jail by bidding on selected memorabilia picked from the original jail and attraction in a silent auction, with all money raised going to the hospice.Close.
