Things to do in Bodmin

Located in the middle of Cornwall, Bodmin offers a wonderful location from which to explore this beautiful part of the country. The southwest boundary of Bodmin Moor is only a few miles from the town and the perfect area to explore. Bodmin is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a wonderful example of the desolate and windswept beauty of the Cornish countryside.

Within the town itself, you can discover more of the local history at the Bodmin Town Museum. This free and dog-friendly attraction maintains displays on local geology, social history and the two World Wars.

Bodmin Jail will take you back in time 100 years to experience life in a Victorian prison. Hear the stories and see what life was like from the safety of a 21st-century exhibition. Step back in time a little further with a visit to Bodmin Keep. Built in 1859, the same year as the station, the Keep was home to soldiers in the Duke of Cornwall’s army and played an important role in World War I and II.

There’s so much to see in Bodmin, so make sure you leave plenty of time to explore the rest of this Cornish town and see what else you can find.
