Dogs Welcome

Child Friendly

We have ample free parking for bikes, cars, vans and mini buses with disabled parking at the entrance. With turning space available for larger vehicles such as buses and coaches.

Dogs are welcome in the café and yard providing they are supervised and kept on a lead. In order to preserve the prison cells and courtroom dogs are not allowed in these areas.

Children are more than welcome to come and learn about the history of the site providing they remain supervised by an adult at all times. The yard does not have a designated play area and ball games are not permitted, however the outdoor space is there to be explored and enjoyed.
