‪Great family activity with a tour round the attraction and food/ drinks at the Tavern. Fun and informative with great special effects- well worth the trip up! ‬

‪I visited the Jail several years ago and enjoyed it even if some of the exhibits were a bit ramshackle then. Now it has been refurbished it is well worth a visit and brings home the brutality of life in past times.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and informative. Both my son and I really enjoyed our visit.

Beware the man who stands behind cell doors to surprise you - good laugh though.‬

‪New to the area and thought we would take in some local history. Great attraction and well organised and covid safe. Friendly and welcoming staff. Fiona in the shop especially. The restaurant has tasty food too and worth a stop for a refueling.‬

‪Best horror atraction I've been to‬
דצמ׳ 2020
‪I really enjoyed the historic tour of the prison and learning about the terrifying history of the place. We were especially impressed with the tour guide and the attention to detail. She had an amazing memory of all the gruesome details. I was especially impressed with the quality of the immersive experience and the atmosphere it instilled. This is hands down better than any other horror attraction I've been to and we both felt it was outstanding value for money.

We were also pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant within the prison where we had some of the most delicious food on the whole trip. Also good value. I would definitely come to Bodmin prison again and try a different tour based on how good this one was. What a great find.‬

‪Very impressive attraction‬
דצמ׳ 2020
‪We last visited a couple of years ago but revisited today following the major refurbishment. Everything has been made with great thought and attention to detail. The new special effects were fab, although I would say it was a bit too scary for my 5 year old and we purposefully and easily avoided the ‘hanging experience’!. The guide told us some great stories. The new restaurant was really lovely, the food was far better than expected, really delicious, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you!‬

‪Sets a new level for attractions in Cornwall.‬

‪Fantastic visit! brilliantly presented story and exhibits which we found really interesting. The cafe has lovely food, much better quality than the usual that you usually find at attractions and reasonably priced too. The staff in all areas were brilliant and very friendly, nothing too much trouble and ready to answer questions. Looking forward to seeing hotel when it opens and would love to do one of their ghost nights too.
Very impressive with what has been done here with the redevelopment. This is how attractions in Cornwall should be done!

Just a note for those looking for the Camel trail car park, if you drive past the jail and it's on your right you are going in the right direction. If it's on your left and you head past the fire station turn around! 👍🏻‬

Good Morning Phil Thank you for your feedback. Try one of our After Dark Experiences next time you are in Cornwall. Hopefully, next time the new car park will be open, which is incidentally is next to the Camel Trail car park. Kind regards, Nikki

‪Scary and fabulous!!!!‬
משפחה • דצמ׳ 2020
‪Went today as a family with two kids, eight and ten. Kids loved it saying it was 'fun and a bit scary!' 😆 So well done, some great true stories are told with special effects (creating an immersive experience) and you get to see lots of cells with interesting info about some of the previous inhabitants and their daily lived experience. Might be a bit gruesome for little ones I suppose, but we really enjoyed it!!! Great gift shop too!!! We'll definitely be returning. Thank you Bodmin Jail x‬

‪My partner and I booked to visit the jail on Halloween having visited a couple of years previously. When we last visited, prior to the refurbishment, the jail was really atmospheric and you got a real feel of what the jail must have been like all those years ago. We both agreed that the jail felt somewhat haunted and in one particular area of the jail we both felt the hairs stand up on the back of our necks. What better time to revisit than Halloween!! Whilst the new attraction is clever and informative the whole visit seemed to be over in minutes where as before we spent a good couple of hours taking it all in. The only original features of the jail we experienced was a couple of cells. Nothing compared to what we saw on our previous visit. The parts of the jail open to visitors has now been modernised and the rest of the jail has been turned into a hotel. Yet again part of history has been modernised in order to bring in revenue. Oh and there was no longer a car park! Overall a very disappointing visit. Definitely won't be going back.‬

Good Morning GNC Thank you for your delayed feedback from your October visit. We are sorry that the Jail did not meet with your expectations but we can guarantee that the building is still haunted. We are surprised at the length of time that your visit lasted, it takes most people 90 minutes. Just to le you know that the new car park will be open once we come out of lockdown. Kind regards, Nikki

‪Fun trip with excellent staff‬
משפחה • דצמ׳ 2020
‪My family, (2 adults, 2 kids - 8 and 5) had a great afternoon out here today. The staff could not have been more attentive to ensure we had a great time. Whilst our youngest found some of the brilliant special effects a bit scary at first both of them really enjoyed it. There was lots to see and it’s very atmospheric.
We then finished it up with a late lunch in the cafe where again the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was delicious too. We really enjoyed it, thanks very much to the all the staff.‬

‪With a love for Cornish history I thought this the perfect place to come. But they have totally transformed it so that very minimal originality is left - you cannot get a feel for what it was really like in the 1800/1900’s as it is all so very modern now. Extremely commercialised which is also reflected in the price at £15 per Adult. It says allowed 1.5 - 2hrs but we was ushered round in 35 minutes as there was another group behind us. Such a shame to loose some great history 😟‬

Good Morning Jade Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit, we feel that we have protected and preserved a Cornish historical site. The Naval Wing is original and you do get a feel for what it was like in the day. Our entrance price is benchmarked against competitors and we are sorry that you felt that your were ushered round, after the Dark Walk the rest of the attraction is free to roam. Kind regards, Nikki
