Come and visit our 200-year-old Prison & Police Museum. Walk past the whipping post, pillory and jougs to be welcomed into our cells where you can explore the story of crime and punishment in the Victorian era.

Our knowledgeable and entertaining guides will take you on a tour of punishment – shot drill, treadmills, prison hulks and transportation, as well as the development of policing.

The tour will last approximately 1-1.15hrs (11.30am-12.45pm) and will also include an object-handling session using artefacts from our collections.

Price: £9 per person.
