Beaumaris Gaol

It's the gallows for you!

Beaumaris Gaol in Steeple Lane was built in 1829 by Joseph Hansom, the man who also designed the Hansom Cab. It is famous for its brutal punishment methods and a number of hangings took place there. It is now a museum with exhibits, some rather gruesome, revealing what it must have been like for prisoners then.

Crime and Punishment Victorian Style!

Crime and Punishment in Victorian prisons included stretching racks, chains and whippings. Look up to the door in the North East wall and above it the gallows looms threateningly. This is where the unfortunate condemned would face their final drop from the hanging platform.

You'll find out more about how the prisoners lived in the cold bare cells, the daily routine and the harsh justice dealt to the inmates.
