Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum is a must visit, bringing over 200 years of justice and injustice to life.

Walk in the footsteps of people whose lives were forever changed in the historic court at Dorchester's Shire Hall. Immerse yourself in the cells before ascending to the dock. You can do all of that with a half price discount. Dorchester's Shire Hall are honouring anyone with a DT postcode with a 50% discount on both day tickets and annual passes - throughout all of January.

Stay warm and dry during the winter weather and explore the amazing history of social justice! Children can become court reporters and journey round the cells using interactive iPad technology to discover stories of crime and punishment. Meanwhile adults can explore the lives of those whose fates were decided in the courtroom, from the Tolpuddle Martyrs to Martha Brown, the last woman hanged in Dorset. Simply bring in a letter or bill with your address on to prove you live in the DT postcode and adults get in for £5 and children £2.50. This ticket also includes an annual pass to return anytime in the year for free!
