Reasonably priced. Worth a nosy if you are in the area. Lots of interesting stories to read and displays to look at.

This museum did provide a unique experience and a good place to go if your walking in the area and want something to do for a half to get out of the cold or rain. I would not make it a destination. The overall feeling we all had is that it was way too expensive for what it is. I believe the family of four pass was 20 pounds and more if you have more kids which i find prohibitive. Would have felt like a much better value at 10 pounds.

There's an potentially interesting attraction here, spoiled by shoddy neglected looking displays, and to add insult to injury expensive!

We have a tradition of enjoying a family Christmas Eve breakfast at Borough Market each year and after we had eaten we had a stroll around the area. We came upon The Clink by chance and, although an unusual location for Christmas, we ventured in.

Overall it worked for us - it was fairly quiet, as you might expect, but the exhibits provided some interesting information and we were able to try out a few of the torture items without being hurried. We had no tour guide so set our own pace. All in all about 90 minutes was spent inside.

This is a great and interesting museum. I recently accompanied a group of students who enjoyed the visit and learning but sadly we were made to feel very uncomfortable by the rude tour guide. She seemed angry we had arrived and had two groups she would have to show round in half the time. We had, in fact, contacted in advance to book the two groups and arrange the time slots but this had clearly not been communicated to the guide. She began the tour by being rude and off hand with our students who, fortunately, were polite and respectful in the face of such negativity.
After about ten minutes into the visit the lady became more positive and seemed to enjoy passing on her knowledge which in fact was good. It is shame this was not the case throughout as it would have made the visit much better. It would have been good to have more time to look around and read the information and look more closely at the artefacts but it was all a little rushed.
I would recommend this for the interesting location, the dark story and the artefacts but think the tours could be improved.
