“Good value - Old Gaol Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We had an enjoyable visit with my daughter (aged 9) and son (aged 2). There is a lot of interesting information, artefacts and resources for the children. Considered it to be very good value for a few hours out. The staff are all volunteers and are very helpful and friendly. The little gift shop has some nice items and lots of tourist information.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Well worth £3.50 for a tour of the gaol and its history. There is an exhibition of some of the costumes and props of the BBC Series Lark Rise to Candleford as well, so an added bonus. Very interesting.

“Buckingham old lock up.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Interesting for a short visit, a well intentioned preservation and display job. Reminded me of 1970s museum. Understand that resources and staff inevitably very limited. Building as a whole important to the centre of Buckingham.
