Located in the heart of historic market town of Buckingham, the iconic Old Gaol was built in 1748 in the style of a castle as a purpose built prison, with later additions in 1839 by the famous local architect George Gilbert Scott.
It is one of the key visitor attractions of Buckingham with a museum, a tourist information centre, a gift shop, and a second hand bookstore.
Buckingham Old Gaol Museum tells the story of Buckingham and north Bucks rural life, including the Flora Thompson Collection (Lark Rise to Candleford author) and Buckinghamshire Military Trust exhibits. A number of the original cells form part of the museum visitor's experience.
