I've walked past this place hundreds of times and now eventually have managed to make a visit with the kids. A pretty good price for a city attraction but don't expect to spend hours here, it is rather a small museum. Having said that, it...More

Set in a lovely part of the city. The museum was interesting and informative. Not too ghoulish for younger visitors.

Relatively cheap for London at £7.50, this museum contained a lot of info and displays relating to the days when you got thrown in "The Clink" simply for being Catholic. I went solo while killing time before a flight, and while the replicas of torture...More

The clink was so much fun, I’m very into my horror so it was really exciting. The lovely girl on the door was very polite and helpful! Also you get a free photo and you get to touch everything in there!!

This fascinating little museum was quite hard to locate but was definitely worth a visit and reasonably priced too. Excellent information available

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

I’m sure there was a code on the receipt that was given after photo taken. You needed to log on and enter code.

I wouldn’t take a 4 year old there are heads on spikes.... I don’t like these at all...and torture equipment. I think a10 year old would love it , especially if they have seen horrible histories

The only stair is the one leading down into the museum. It is an old building so it is not a flat concrete floor. I would say that if you can get down the front stairs you can easily get around in the museum
