About The Judges Lodgings

The Judges Lodgings in Presteigne is a living museum of its own history as a Victorian courthouse and judges’ lodgings. In its 19th century heyday, the Judges Lodgings had a courthouse, jail cells and apartments for the judges who came to sit at the Court of King's Great Sessions or Assizes.

Now fully restored and with its original furnishings, the rooms and building of the Judges Lodgings have been transformed into a lively museum. Audio guides bring its history to life, with the stories of its inhabitants, servants and the criminals who faced justice there.
