On a combination ticket with the Beaumaris Gaol. A 400-year-old courthouse still occasionally in use. Fascinating insight into the workings of courts both past and present. Audio tour.

Definitely worth a visit if you have a combined ticket with the gaol that way you get a full picture of the life of the accused. The courthouse is small however it's very interesting and informative. I had no idea the courts were so unfair.

The courthouse is in the centre of Beaumaris, just behind the main street but a bit hidden away. It has a strong atmosphere, feeling very real and authentic and quite moving at times. It's one of the oldest buildings in the town - apart from...More

Definitely recommend a visit to the Courthouse, preferably before visiting the Gaol. A fantastic historical building, which transports you to times when the law did not make sense and highlighted the hardships of locals through the years. The audio commentary was informative and pitched at...More

A hidden gem close to the castle, which opens your eyes to the struggles of years past. The unfair law system, with random sentences, where stealing was considered a far more serious act than murder! The unfairness of magistrates being English and dealing with offenders...More
