Places to eat & drink in Bodmin.

For centuries a focal point of the tin industry, this historic town on the south-western edge of rugged Bodmin Moor dates at least to the 6th century when St Petroc built a priory which was later rebuilt to become the largest church in Cornwall.

An important building is the town's jail which was used to hold both the Domesday Book and the Crown Jewels during the First World War. It was also the site of Britain's last public hanging in the 19th century.

The regimental museum of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry exhibits many military items while an added delight is a ride on the Bodmin and Wenford heritage railway.

Every July the town is the scene of an ancient tradition known as the Bodmin Riding when locals stage a horseback procession.

The town witnessed no less than three Cornish rebellions, one of which involved the so-called usurper Perkin Warbeck, who proclaimed himself 'King Richard'.

On Bodmin Moor are three prehistoric stone circles and the remains of a Bronze Age tomb.
