Discovered the Clink museum by chance during a visit to Borough market. It was a good find, as my nephew had been studying this period in history at school. I was really pleased to find something that he found interesting. The lady on the entrance...More

Decently priced. The displays and decorations give off an initial touristy vibe but the write-ups are well done and offer a bunch of interesting info. Seems like negative reviews here are from people who breezed through it without bothering to put in any effort to...More

We visited as a family during the Welsh half-term (one week after the English half-term), meaning the museum was almost empty. The kids went off to explore and count the ghosts... there was a lollipop waiting for each of them at the gift desk if...More

Moderately priced & is about an hour's worth of entertainment but not for the squeamish. Thankfully it doesn't have the smell to go with the visuals. Nearby is the Golden Hind, worth a visit.

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
