I thought it was worth the £7.50 admission fee, especially as we had the 2 for 1 offer with Days Out Guide. Lots of information about life in medieval London and in the prison. There are props that you can handle. Activity sheet (50p) for...More

The place really gives you the feeling of the dark ages. For me, all this era is something that I never experienced so intence in the past. The museum is small but it is really very interesting. But remember, this is a reproduction of the...More

The Clink Prison Museum is a great remnant of London's prison history. It's tons of fun to walk through because you can touch everything, and the exhibits are very informative. It's in a great location to stop in and learn about the history of the...More

Never heard of this place until we walked past on a couple's day out. Really reasonably priced couple of hours and the kids loved the torture section! Nice touch of free digital photo at the end.

Found myself investigating London solo today and was walking down an off the path road and "found" the museum. I'm an adult woman but found the concept intriguing and went in. The fee was very reasonable.... and the museum itself admittedly was not very large......More

The history of the Clink is rather gruesome. The member of staff on today was really helpful and had a smile to share with my kids. It is a prison with a dark past. From medieval times when the inventors enjoyed coming up with more...More

Southwark
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
