We had a great time visiting this place. There's lots to explore inside, with access to nearly all of the rooms. In each room there's lots of information explaining what the prison was like. I'm not usually a big history fan, but I found this very interesting! It really gives you a feel for what it was like to be a prisoner during that time. Along with visiting the castle, this makes for a great day out.

Hi Adam, Many thanks for your review of the gaol and so glad you enjoyed your visit. Sadly, during the Covid crisis we have had to abandon our usual practice of showing groups around the gaol for a guided tour. We have tried our best to compensate for this by providing a one-way system around the gaol to keep or visitors, and our guides, as safe as possible. When we all get back to normal and these restrictions are lifted, please come back and see us again and we will provide you with our old-style tours that will really bring the place alive for you. Many thanks again, Roger Vincent (Aka: The Governor)

Hi, thanks for taking the time to write a response after your visit and we’re glad you enjoyed it. Despite the problems we have experienced with COVID-19 we have tried to make your visit as enjoyable as we can. However, when the problems with Covid have been overcome and we can get back to normal, please come back again and have a full conducted tour which will really bring the stories around the gaol to life. Once again, many thanks for your review and we look forward to seeing you again post-Covid. Cheers, Roger Vincent (aka The Governor)

What an amazing part of Anglesey history! Brilliant place. I am fascinated by original ironwork and to see all the locks on the cells and the treadmill etc was fabulous! Some truly interesting stories on the information boards. Loved it. All very Covid-safe, too. We got a glimpse of “The Governor” whilst we queued, but never saw him once we were inside. Such a shame because I have heard wonderful things and some human interaction would have really brought the place alive. Nevertheless, it’s a must-see!

I am so sorry that you we weren't able to meet up during your visit but the Covid issue has meant that the tours I used to give as The Governor can no longer be carried out. To try and compensate for this I try to be in the open area by the treadwheel and whipping room to try to make contact with visitors and tell them about these items and about the two executions. One count I did on a busy day a week ago showed that, between 10:00 and 17:00 I had repeated this over fifteen times. I am sure you can appreciate that, during a full day, I have to have a break for lunch and a couple of coffees to prevent me losing my voice :-) Sadly, therefore, I can only assume that I was having a break when you reached this part of the gaol and was therefore not around. I really apologise for this but I am sure you will understand that I can't be there all day without a break. As a volunteer, I have been attending the gaol on two or three days a week since we opened in July but, due to the rise in Covid issues in the area over the last couple of weeks I have decided to discontinue until things improve. I promise to be back as soon as I can but, until then my apologies for your disappointment during your visit. Kind regards, Roger Vincent (AKA The Governor)

Many thanks for your very positive review of our wonderful gaol. We have made a great effort to ensure that our visitors and staff are as safe as we can possibly make them during the Covid pandemic with as little impact on your visit as we can. Hopefully, when the current crisis has passed, you will come back and see us again and be able to have a tour of the whole gaol with one of our excellent guides. Many thanks once again for taking the trouble to write a review. Regards, Roger Vincent (aka The Governor)

A very well preserved example of a 19th century prison. Tour is very COVID friendly with a one way system in operation. There was a fun quiz for kids to do which lead in order all the way around. Lots of information on the walls regarding prisoners who had occupied the prison and crimes they were jailed for and what the jail was used for after it stopped being a jail towards the end of the 19th century. We thoroughly enjoyed our hour and a half here.
