Most of the jail was closed due to the weather so we didn't get to see very much, but it's well laid out in the original jail.

I have driven by the jail on numerous occasions and never went in. So it was about time we paid a visit! Very interesting - lots of facts and stories that showed what prison life was like. I especially liked the old prison - the guide was a great guy who talked us through the history and told us lots of stories. The new jail was again full of interesting stories that shock you. Didn't like the guide he should keep his political views to himself and do his job as a guide! The cost for the two of us was £18 - a bit pricey but worth it. Well worth a visit.

Loved the actors. When we visited it was comic relief and school children were spending 24 hours in the cells to raise money - great fun.

Fantastic! The costumed interpreters bring this place alive. Very approachable and enthusiastic without being intrusive, especially the Warder. Good job guys.
