Spend some time behind bars for the world's most interactive prison tour. For a fascinating insight into more than 400 years of history, you'll follow an ex-prison guard (who once managed the very wings you'll be walking) behind the scenes of at one of three historic prisons. You'll follow in the footsteps of those on the wrong side of the law. Starting your sentence, you'll be processed through reception before heading out to the wings and into the general population. Visit never-before-seen areas of the prison, where you'll learn about the inmates, daily life, visits and prison work as well as the grisly side of history complete with stomach-turning tales of execution. If you're feeling brave, there's even the chance for a 'Closed Cell' experience, which involves entering cells and having the door locked behind you, hopefully the closest you'll ever get to be a prisoner for real!
