A small little "holding cell" for the drunk and disorderly. It's in the middle of town so hard to miss. Part of the history of the town so include it if you find history interesting.

We spotted this little place while having a sandwich at a cafe across the road. Intriguing little spot with a good bit of history. Nice photos taken. A pleasant ten minutes spent.

This is only a small attraction near the harbour but it is interesting and an unexpected little find- if you are in Badmouth anyway go and have a look!

went yesterday with my 7 year old and he was amazed to see the old jail..... it is good to see the history even if the old man in the corner scared the lights out of me ...

A must see with modern architecture and seats around it. Right near the car park and short walk from the station it really is worth visiting for its historical value. Try not to leave any children you don't want in there!

We had a quick look inside and read the information posted. It was quite interesting and worth a quick stop. There is a fake man inside that scared me and made me shriek! Lots of history to read up online as well about it.

Small but worth a quick visit to see the jail where "ye olde Barmouth drunkards" spent the night. The historic dressed figures seated inside portray the wretched reality of that time. It is free attraction.

Just behind Davy Jones Locker is one of the most unassuming museums I have ever come across. There is no fee, little in the way of notice, and not really that old having being built in the 1830's but it is worth checking out for...More
