Attraction Information

This Victorian Gaol (Jail) was built by Hansom (famous for the Hansom Cab) in 1829. The gaol features the only original tread wheel in situ in Britain and a gibbet is still fixed to the outer wall.
Beaumaris Gaol will live in your memory for a long time, it is a haunting and dramatic spectacle, and therefore if your children are sensitive you should give it extra consideration before taking them. It will give you a fascinating insight into the world of the prisoner in Victorian times. Explore this massive building with its dimly lit corridors, spartan cells and places of punishment; visit the condemned cell or experience the darkness of the punishment cell; and handle chains and fetters last worn by prisoners a century ago.
1830: William Griffith was hanged for the attempted murder of one of his two wives.
1840: Gaynor Jones was jailed for one month's hard labour for stealing a quart of milk.
1862: Richard Rowlands was hanged for the murder of his father in law. He went to his death pleading his innocence.
