“Crime and Punishment”
Review of Beaumaris Gaol

Beaumaris Gaol
Ranked #4 of 25 things to do in Beaumaris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The wife and I visited Beaumaris Gaol on 8th April mainly because it was somewhere to go "inside" on a rainy day. You get a real feel of how the prisoners lived, worked and were treated and the despair they must have felt. It is well worth a visit and very reasonable if you buy a ticket for courthouse at the same time.

Run by Anglesey Council both the Gaol and Courthouse offer an insite to how we treated our guilty neighbours in the past. Lots of walking not suitable for wheelchair users as part upstairs however worth a visit. One cell is equiped like a modern cell so if you now a current inmate you can get an ideal what there cell like.

See how hard it was for minor crime

Suitable for 5 plus

Well worth a visit. Extremely interesting. Original treadmill. The nursery and the information of what they gave women in labour are an eye opener. Get the ticket for the courthouse at the same time.

My partner and I visited the Beaumaris Gaol at the end of October, a great place to go especially if the weather isn't too good. The only downside is that it is a bit tucked away but once you've found it, its worth the small entrance fee. Very friendly staff and interesting audio guide which is free!
