Beaumaris Gaol, opened in 1829, as a Victorian Gaol in the heart of Beaumaris. The gaol was thought to be a model prison with running water and toilets in each cell, before this time gaols were just for holding prisoners before they were heard in court, hanged or transported to the colonies.
When walking around you get a feeling for life in jail during Victorian times. You can see and read about the small cells, infirmary, men and women’s work rooms, punishment cell, human treadmill, chapel and much more. On the first floor you have an interesting door that would lead out to the gallows where during its life as a prison two people were publicly hanged.
After the jail closed down it became the Beaumaris police station and later was used to house prisoner of war during the world war.
