Clink Prison Museum

KidRated’s Clink Prison Museum Top Tips:

  • Not for the faint hearted!
  • History buffs may also enjoy the nearby Golden Hinde and Globe Theatre
  • Perfect for a spare hour on a rainy day 

The Clink Prison Museum stands on the site of one of the oldest and most notorious Medieval prisons. The original prison dates back to 1144 and served as a prison until the Eighteenth Century. Throughout its history it incarcerated many interesting criminals. During your tour of the museum you can learn more about these people.

 

Situated by the river in Southwark, you will also get the chance to learn about the history of the area. As it was outside the parameters of the City all kinds of naughty things went on, such as theatre, and other morally questionable activities. For those who enjoy learning about scandalous history, this is the place for you.

 

The museum is very interactive and you will get the chance to handle archeological artefacts and even torture devices!

 

The Clink Prison Museum is also educational. If your child is learning about the Medieval or Tudor periods in history at school, this museum is a great place to spark their interest.
