  • Ideal place to visit on a rainy afternoon. Loved the introduction by one of the guides, couldn't have been more enthusiastic! Great that most of the cells has something to look at. Good information boards which bought the various aspects of the gaol to life. Amazing ideals that the Victorian officers tried to install on the prisoners. Very worth a visit. Lost a star due to early closing and slightly expensive. Very cold in there as well!
  • It's OK but for the price of admission it was somewhat disappointing. Some kind of staff presence telling the history or even audio recording would have been good. Although there was written history
