The Clink Prison Museum is built upon the original site of the Clink Prison. The Prison dates back to 1144 making it one of England’s oldest, if not the oldest Prison. It began as a dungeon for disobedient clerics under the Bishop of Winchester’s palace. The exhibition features a handful of prison life tableaux, and dwells on the torture and grim conditions within. Families will experience a hands on educational experience allowing them to handle original artefacts, including torture devices, as well as the opportunity to view and hear the amazing stories of the inmates and the notorious Southbank.
Better suited for the older children – this place is more than a little spooky.
Admission fees apply and concessions are also available.
