St. Augustine Old Jail

Free admission
167 San Marco Ave., St. Augustine, 32084

The Basics

Tours of the building—today simply known as the Old Jail—give you the chance to see how some of Florida’s toughest fugitives lived while locked away. Led by a costumed guide, step into a maximum security cell, visit the sheriff’s house and gallows, and check out a collection of weapons from the early 20th century.

Book your Old Jail tour in advance to skip the line at the ticket office. Or, for a spookier experience, go after dark as part of a haunted tour of historic St. Augustine. The Old Jail is also a stop on the city’s hop-on hop-off sightseeing trolley.

Great experience. Sad history
I work in a Jail so for me it was very interesting to see a different facility inside specially a small, old one. The history however is very sad. Highly recommended. Not sure if I would be one to bring kids inside.

St. Augustine Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour
The 15 minute wait time Between trolleys was excellent. Getting up into the trolley with arthritic knees was a little challenging but thank goodness for the steps and the lifts that were provided. We had Irish on the return trip on the trolley and he was just excellent. Funny and helpful and knowledgeable. The trolleys were clean thank you for that. I wish the seats were a little bit more comfortable they were not built for comfort but all in all a most excellent Excursion.

St. Augustine Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour
Hop on and hop off Trolley Tour was a convenient way to visit the major historic sign sites and high points of Saint Augustine. Driver’s style of giving information was very good, she was safety conscious and polite. Her name was Mary. The seats in the trolley were not comfortable at all. This is the single reason why I did not give this travel activity five stars.

Haunted Trolley Tour of St Augustine
I decided to plan this tour for my family while we were in St. Augustine. I was looking for something different and fun for the kids (teens). Overall, I had a great experience on the tour. I absolutely loved the jail tour. That was by far, my favorite part of the tour! Would definitely recommend it!

Haunted Trolley Tour of St Augustine
Went with my dad who had been to St. A many times. We both enjoyed the tour. There were some good stories and some creepy vibes. Nothing scary. The guides were very invested in providing a fun time. Tour was appropriate for all ages, but if your kiddos are afraid of the dark, they might get scared in the wax museum or old jail, but the darkness is not prolonged. Very unique beginning. Worth the money for us.
