Bodmin Jail

Bodmin Jail (alternatively Bodmin Gaol) is a tourist attraction and former prison situated in Bodmin, on the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. Now partially in ruins, the building displays small exhibits of offenders imprisoned in Bodmin and offers a grim view into the criminal culture of Cornwall in days gone by. The exhibits are not lavish and are fairly basic in design, showcasing gory mannequins accompanied with plaques, describing the offence committed by particular persons and their sentence, in their respective cells. Because of the nature of Bodmin Gaol, it has been likened to such attractions as The London Dungeon.
