Historical sites for everyone......

Looking for a new destination to bring your group

Jailhouse Tours operates two decommissioned prisons; Shrewsbury Prison in Shropshire and Shepton Mallet Prison in Somerset. Our giant prison gates are now wide open for private groups and coach parties.


What you can expect from your time ‘behind bars’? Jailhouse Tours offer a two hour guided tour, led by ex-prison officers who worked these very landings and recount tales of life inside. Stepping back in time to 1610 to the present day, who were the infamous inmates, how many escaped, when was the last hanging, how do drugs get into jail, all are just a handful of questions you may want to ask.


Your tour will take in a traditional prison wing, cells furnished as they were left, segregation, prison kitchens, hangman’s bedroom and the hanging room, amongst other areas throughout your 2 hour tour.


‘A highly engaging tour from a building with history oozing from within its wall’   Joan, Salisbury

Complimentary refreshments are on offer to all our Group visitors.  We can also tailor a tour to your specific requirements.


We welcome Group leaders on fam visits and offer discounts to the whole party as well as free places to the group leader & coach driver.
