Ruthin Gaol

A 'House of Correction', where vagabonds and the unemployed were put to work, has stood at the bottom of Clwyd Street since 1654. Over the centuries the building has been radically altered as views on how inmates should be housed changed.

In 2002, the Gaol re-opened as a museum and today you can visit and see at first hand how the villains and rapscallions of Denbighshire once lived.

The Gaol is at 46 Clwyd St, Ruthin LL15 1HP
