Ghost Tour

Next availability: Wednesday 19th May, 7:30pm

Shrewsbury Prison is the second most haunted jail in the world – come and investigate and see what lurks behind the high prison walls in the dead of night.

Lights-Out Tour

Next availability: Thursday 20th May, 6pm

As with the daytime guided tours, the Lights Out Tour, is led by an ex-prison officer with over 30 years’ experience of working the night shift in a prison.
Prisons at night have a very different feel – the staff numbers are massively reduced and prisoners are locked in their cells. It can be a dangerous time with sentiments running high and takes a different set of skills to manage emotive situations.

This is a fascinating guided tour around the Georgian part of the prison, underneath the Victorian building. You will CRAWL through the tunnels to experience and be immersed in the life of a Georgian prisoner.
