A very different and interesting way of presenting things.
It’s trial of a real murder (albeit condensed into half an hour or so) and on presentation of the evidence, you vote guilty or not guilty. It uses film (with actors), audio testimony (actors again) and...More
visited the courtroom after visiting Bodmin jail.I was a bit apprehensive at first.it turned out my husband and I were the only two on the jury. the young lady who took us into the courtroom was brilliant. She explained the case against Matthew Weeks and...More
A fantastic 2 hours spent here. The listed courtroom is genuine, as are the horse hair filled leather seats you can and will still sit on! A re-enactment of a local murder trial very cleverly done. At the end, you get to decide the guilty...More
This little gem is tucked away in the stunning building of Shire Hall in Mount Folly square in Bodmin.

Really interesting and well put together.

The guide who first explained the crime we were going to be listening about spoke very quietly and quickly and rushed it so fast I could hardly keep up...More
We visited the experience after seeing it while walking round the town. Very cheap (under £4 each) for about an hour of "infotainment", though the animatronics were limited, basic and felt old fashioned in today's world of available technology!
If you have an hour to...More
