    It’s a good way to pass a few hours and learn more about the city . You can go to listen to the trials , in and out of the cells or get caught in the stocks .

    Had a really fun experience at the Gaol, we were there about an hour and there’s some really good information about the history of the building and the prisoners it housed. Also some really good displays about the history of radio. Definitely worth seeing if you’re nearby!
