October half term behind bars — Kids go FREE!

Join our Prison Officers on a Guided Tour to hear over 200 years of history come to life. You will explore two traditional Victorian prison wings and have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be locked behind the steel doors of a real cell, as you step into life as a prisoner! This tour is suitable for all ages.

Prefer to take things at your own pace? Opt for a Self-Guided Tour instead. Use our map to navigate the prison and soak up the atmosphere whilst completing one of our Activity Booklets, available in 3 difficulty levels to challenge all ages. Take in the facts from information boards and sound boxes throughout the prison.
