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.

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.

Discover St Augustine: Attractions Pass with Hop-On Hop-Off
We (wife & I) really enjoyed enjoyed our Hop-on-Hop-off tour. There are a lot of interesting things you would miss and never see in Saint Augustine without taking this tour. We are here for four days. We stayed on for the full route just to find things what we wanted to go back to really see.

St. Augustine Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour
Very accessible, easy to hear guide, trolley was clean., Driver, Doc, was very patient with a mobility impaired rider getting on and off. Pepper, the driver was great too! THE BEST PART…We left our backpack on the trolley , went to one of the booths … it was at a different stop… it was shuttled back to us within 10 minutes.

St Augustine Shared Golf Cart Tour
The golf cart tour was a great way to experience St Augustine and would definitely recommend it to others. Chip was a great tour guide and took us to places we did not know of and would like to visit on a return visit. We enjoyed the intimacy of the tour and being able to interact with Chip.
