About The Clink Prison Museum, London

The museum stands on the original site of the Clink Prison which belonged to the 11th century. The prison was one of the oldest ones in the country. The prison housed plenty of sinners of that time. The museum samples the same features of the prison. It educates the new age about the historic time and punishment levied on prisoners which included debtors, harlots, traitors, thieves, drunkards and more. The prison although not known to many, is indeed interesting and educative.

  • Interesting exhibits and information boards. Quite a small museum but gives an idea of how bad conditions would have been for prisoners! Worth a visit for an hour. £7.50 entry fee seems a bit steep hence the four stars...

  • This museum is far underrated and is truly a hidden gem in London. If you come up to London by train you do qualify for the 2-for-1 entry however it is already at a reasonable price. Unlike the dungeon this is a far more educational Museum about how prisons worked in history. The museum only takes you about an hour to get through but it is completely packed with information.

  • I had a blast here! I read through a lot of reviews that made me skeptical on visiting, but I'm glad I did. There is a lot of reading to do if you want to learn anything, but it's pretty neat history. I went closer to the end of the day and wish I had a little bit more time to spend. The staff was very friendly and didn't seem to be bothered that we were there until after they had closed.

  • Small museum of prison. You can find out everything about Londons prison history and famous prisoners. How were they treated, how were they punished and so on. Its quite small but still nice. On the end you can take photo's wich you can download online for free. Would recommend.

  • While it's cool to go to for the historic aspect, there isn't much original stuff left here and you can go through it in less than an hour, even reading everything and pondering the various exhibits. I did find it interesting that a space once considered only just big enough for a Victorian era man now has four people in it in our modern prisons. That and the "scold" were the most horrifying parts.
