Inside the new £50m Cornwall hotel in the UK's 'most haunted building' – opening in February

YOU can now stay at the UK's "most haunted building" as a former jail is to open as a hotel in Cornwall.

Bodmin Jail Hotel is to welcome guests from February 2021 – where you will be staying inside the former cells

Following a £50m renovation, the new hotel keeps many of the features of the 18th century prison.

The bedrooms have been created using three of the former cells combined, with lavish ensuite bathrooms inside.

Options include Classic Rooms and Family Rooms, as well as the Governor’s bedrooms which have access to the private Executive Lounge.

Take your dog along too – they offer dog-friendly getaways with pets being given beds, treats as well as breakfast.



The former corridors of the jail have retained their original character, although now have a huge glass ceiling above it.

You can dine at the on-site restaurant The Chapel Restaurant or the Jolly Hangman Tavern.

The Chapel Bar serves a range of cocktails and gins, as well as daily afternoon tea between 2pm and 4pm.

You can even get married there with venues available for up to 300 people, although this will be on hold depending on the pandemic.


The jail was once used to house the Crown Jewels, before the prison closed in 1927, but you can go on tours of the rest of the jail which are available on-site.

One-night at Bodmin Jail Hotel starts from £130, while tickets for the Bodmin Jail Visitor Attraction which includes an overnight stay and breakfast or dinner start from £175 for two.

It is also a great place to stay to explore Cornwall, including the Bodmin Moor or the Eden Project.

Book your stay at Bodmin Jail Hotel from February 12 here.

Other famous UK prisons you can tour include Shepton Mallet Prison, which once housed the Kray Twins.

Here are some of the other jails you can visit or stay in across the UK.

You can even eat in a prison in Brixton, where you are served by current inmates.
