The Old Court House
“Suffer any wrong that can be done you rather than come here!” Dickens.
A day spent visiting the Beaumaris Courthouse, gives a fascinating insight into the horrors of what was Victorian Law and Order. As Dickens wrote; “Mr. Jaggers’ own high-backed chair was of deadly black horsehair, with rows of brass nails around it, like a coffin…” Grade II Listed: Beaumaris Courthouse was built in 1614, and then renovated in the 19th Century, the dramatic, gothic features of this fascinating building lend a sobering gravitas to the whole experience. Of course, the kids will love it! The chance to dress up in wigs, and shout; “Not Guilty M’Lord,” will prove just too irresistible. One of the oldest Courthouses in Britain, throughout the centuries has witnessed various cases from petty misdemeanours to murder. Learn all about the history and interesting stories of courtroom experience, and the conditions people were exposed to back in the mists of time.- Top 100 Review
