Coach Trips

We offer coach companies the opportunity to visit a real prison, shining a light on history from 1793 to present day.

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.

You have the freedom of booking your own slot and having a Prison Officer exclusive to your group.
