“Ok for short visit”

Clink Prison Museum
Ranked #187 of 1,689 things to do in London

Took a group of 16yr old students and thankfully paid a lower student price. What's there is very interesting and atmospheric but it only took us 20mins to walk through. Interesting but not worth the full price. Would I go again? Probably not

My partner and I found our visit to The Clink very interesting and informative. I would recommend a visit and think it is value for money (7.50 for an adult). I would not recommend for young children as it is quite creepy in places...and to truly understand the place there is lots of reading to do! Certainly worth a visit!

Unlike the London Dungeon down the road, there are no theatrics here, no amateur actors covered in ketchup dragging in people from the street, no trinkets to buy or café to sip cappuccino, no buggy access and not much to entertain the kids. But if you are looking for something interesting to while away an hour or two in Southwark then this can't be beat.

Set in what was the original Clink prison, and from where we have the word Clink meaning 'prison', this museum is crammed with atmosphere and information, giving a real feel of how inmates were incarcerated many years ago. Original and riveting.

The tickets for Clink came with an offer on at nearby Vonopolis. Did the wine tasting and then visited Clink. This is quite atmospheric and very interesting for people with a desire to know more about the social history of London for the last 500 years. Not somewhere to put on the top of the list of attractions to visit but if you are in the Borough Market area with an hour to kill it is worth a visit.

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