Buckingham Old Gaol Museum

Located in the heart of historic market town of Buckingham, the iconic Old Gaol was built in 1748 in the style of a castle, with later additions in 1839 by the famous local architect George Gilbert Scott. It is one of the key visitor attractions of Buckingham.

The purpose-built prison is now a museum, a tourist information centre, a gift shop, a second hand bookstore and a unique venue to hire.

The Old Gaol is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm all year round. Last admission to the museum is half an hour before closing. The Old Gaol hosts a wide range of special events during the year.
