If you’re planning a visit to Bodmin, the previous county town of Cornwall, here are some attractions not to be missed!

Whether arriving via bike, along the Camel Trail, or car, don’t miss Bodmin Jail! Recently re-opened after a major re-development, you can immerse yourself in Cornwall’s Dark History in their new Dark Walk, with state of the art theatrical effects that bring some of the grimmest stories vividly to life. You can enjoy something to eat at The Jolly Hangman Tavern or even stay overnight in the new Bodmin Jail Hotel, a 4-star boutique hotel, built within the walls of the Grade II listed building.  For more information and how to pre book your visit, follow this link https://padstowlive.com/things-to-do/bodmin-jail/

For more history why not visit Bodmin Keep which is over 160 years old and is the historic home of the Army in Cornwall.  This former headquarters of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry houses the museum, with more than three hundred years of military history, a library and meeting rooms.
