About this event

There is a whole world to explore. It is a fantastic experience for couples, groups of friends and those with an interest in the paranormal.

At 8pm you will be met by prison staff, let into the prison through the huge wooden gates and shown to your cell for the night. This is a traditional Victorian cell providing a truly authentic experience.

As part of this awesome experience an ex-prison officer will take you and your fellow inmates for a tour of the jail - you will visit, amongst others, two Victorian Wings, a number of themed cells, the segregation unit including the harsh and brutal strip cell and finish in the execution room. After the tour you are free to explore the site or, of course, retire to your cell for the next few hours. Some will choose to go ghost hunting and others to play games - the choice is yours. BUT don't even think of escaping - you won't have time to burrow out Shawshank Redemption style and the walls are VERY high.
