Visit Derby Gaol

Derby Gaol is a working museum which is open to the public. Having been through many incarnations (including a nightclub) since it’s construction, it was eventually bought in 1997 by paranormal investigator, and dedicated historian Richard Felix. It was then restored after much hard work, to it’s current condition, mirroring as closely as possible, its original state.

Please Check With Us for Opening Times.

The Gaol is also available for private tours during the week for parties of 10 or more at a price of £10 per head.
