Old Court House



Old Court House

Experience over 200 years of gruesome crime and punishment in a setting little changed over the years. Stand in the dock and sit in the creepy cells where prisoners waited for their appearance before the judge. The Old Crown Court & Cells are famous for the trial of the Tolpuddle Martyrs in 1834. Visit during the Summer opening when an experienced guide will bring their story and the history of the courtroom and cells alive. 


Go and visit the Old Court House and then come and pop into Taste Brasserie for lunch or afternoon tea. Or why not start the day off with a Taste Brasserie breakfast and then go explore the Old Court House.
