the only asylum i know off where i live is st anns, i live in bournemouthm dorset, UK.
st anns is the county mental asylum with patiants from people with mood disorders to complete psychotic mass murderes.
if i needed to be admitted to a hospital tghis is where i would go, you can volentary go there.
im guessing the really insane are locked away but they do have a day room where all patiants can go.
anyway here is a picture
yes i know its not as horror looking as some of the abandoned ones in america, but its still pretty creepy.
and its still open.
