Took grandson of 13 and there was enough on display to make him interested in the history of the jail

We had massive problems booking on line as they did not respond to our emails and also phone nr did not work at all. We had to contact local tourist info but they couldn’t get thru either. When we took the chance of just to take a chance it was just explained by a quick remark that their system was down. No further explanation or apologies ( on their website it states that you cannot just turn up without booking)

Very entertaining if that's the right word and quite poignant realising just what went on there in the past. Extremely well thought out, we were both very impressed

A great experience throughout- animated and factual. Suggestion …. submit Travelzoo vouchers FIRST to then receive a 20% voucher off your desperately needed coffee and cake before you enjoy the Jail experience.

As we live in Plymouth we had the same benefits as Cornish ‘locals’, and were given a card entitling us to 20% off anything in the gift shop and restaurant. We bought a couple of things and also had a very tasty lunch
