All reviews dartmoor prison well worth a visit garden ornaments on display per adult rainy day past and present interesting insight interesting visit couple of hours down the road for sale interesting place great place to visit car park helpful staff inmates

Interesting Prison Museum - Lots to see and explore.
Family Friendly - lots to keep older kids entertained.
