Hawkes Bay Prison
If you want something a bit different we would recommend the Hawkes Bay Prison. We went with some friends the second time and parts were very spooky.
The prison is located on the beginning of Bluff Hill. It is a tricky entrance but hey when you see the history and the reasons why it was like it was, it makes sense.
I like the presentations, you can go at your own pace and pick up different areas and find out it has a story.
Seeing the earthquake damage was quite real.
My part of top interest was knowing the old stories I had seen and how many old criminals actually went to prison there, like Mr Asia.
I was actually curious why it was so small and why they put it right there.
Maybe if you visit you will have some better spooky questions.
