Guided Tours | Shrewsbury Prison

If you are a family or friend’s group of 15 or more then you can book an exclusive tour of Shrewsbury Prison.

Your two-hour, no holds barred tour showcases life inside. Prison Officers with real experience will take your group through the traditional prison wings, furnished cells, healthcare, segregation, prisoners’ kitchen, visits, hangman’s bedroom and finish in the execution room.

Who were the infamous inmates? How many escaped? When was the last hanging? How do drugs get into jail? All are just a handful of questions your group may want to ask.
