Bodmin

BODMIN

The County town of Cornwall is positioned in the centre of the county just off the busy A30. It is worth a stop-over to explore the interesting museums and the C15 St Petroc, the largest Parish Church in the County. It does not have the chic shops of Truro or the dramatic locations of Falmouth and Penzance. It is a quiet, country town full of history. Witness the historic jail, scene of public executions until 1862, and keeper of the Crown Jewels in WWI. The Information Centre is set in the old Court House where the ghosts and spirits of unlucky souls foundered. A good start- offpoint for the Camel Trail. Indoor swimming pool.
