Gives an incredible insight to the abhorrent past of the area. While it is geared towards the whole family, you still get a real sense of the immeasurable suffering prisoners went through, as well as the stunning hypocrisy of the church led administration. It may not be a long tour, but if you are paying attention it will be a very moving one.Read more
Me & my daughter decided to pop into the museum after we were walking past from having breakfast nearby, we live in Southwark so it interested us. For £8 (£6 For my daughter who got a University consession) the lovely girl at the box office advised us to go slow. Yes, this is a tiny little museum but full of facts, things to touch and try on. We not only learned about the prison, which creepily has an original wall, but we had a laugh posing with the statues & torture equipment. There may be other free museums but this is only a few pounds, its hands on and then you get a FREE fun photo at the end (We managed to do 2) How many attractions offer that? Small gift shop & the staff were really friendly.. What more do you want for 8 quid?Read more

I went to the Clink Prison with my niece as she really wanted to go there. I was pleasantly surprised at how informative it was and how well laid out it was. There was a bit of fun counting the vermin on the way round and a free photo at the end. Really great value for money and great bit of history.Read more
This was a great museum. The history of the prison was artfully presented and I can’t believe how much we learned about this horrifying history of torture and mistreatment. Seeing the actual torture devices was fascinating and a bit terrifying too. Read more
