Production & Film Location

Shrewsbury Prison offers the perfect, authentic prison location for filming. Boasting over 4 acres of space, with the original Victorian prison buildings and cells, over 4 floors.

The large, imposing red-bricked façade of the main prison building stands tall, as you enter through the iconic Georgian gate lodge. Reminiscent of a grand stately home, you will take in the original governor’s house, flanked either side by barred windows. As you enter the prison and follow in a prisoners’ footsteps, through reception and onto A Wing, you are able to imagine the vast space filled with the noise, hustle and bustle of a working prison.
