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.

  • Really interesting museum. The kids loved it. Loads of 'hands on' things to do, which makes it quite different from the usual 'do not touch' museums. Great to have a free (digital) photo at the end too - nice touch.

  • Doesn't worth the cost of the ticket! Very short tour into a reconstruction of Clink Prison. There's just a wall as remains of the ancient prison. The cost of the ticket for a family of 2 adults and 2 children is 18 £ (+ 2 £ for the "historic guide" ... don't you wanna buy it?). Definitively too much for dummies put around and some ancient (???) objects supposedly used in to that prison.

  • Small quick tour but very educational. I recommend for all ages if you have a genuine interest in British history

  • Absolute let down There was nothing if any interest in here. It is more suited to young children it was just a load of posters on the wall that you had to read. It was £7:50 that I will never get back. Truly disappointed. Definitely will never be back

  • Overpriced... Literally 3 rooms. What's there is interesting but not enough. Staff lovely
