Shrewsbury Prison to open up more than just its doors Update - Summer 2019


2019 always promised to be an exciting year for the development of Shrewsbury Prison, now Jailhouse Tours is pleased to announce that phase one of the development plan is about to begin.

The initial works will include taking down a portion of the prison outer wall, removing all the demountables and storage containers from around the site and the removal of the modern kitchen extension. The completed works will bring a new lease of life to this fantastic building, creating more open space throughout the gaol, allowing it to be seen from new viewpoints, some of which have been hidden away since the 1980’s.

The majority of the works will take place down one side of the prison and, both Jailhouse Tours and Aislin’s Funhouse will remain open throughout the initial works. 

Joel Campbell CEO of Jailhouse Tours, says “This is a new chapter for Shrewsbury Prison, Shrewsbury town and the wider community. Completing this first phase of development will greatly enhance the already exciting offering within the prison walls. Making it more accessible and providing a brilliant venue space for the town. It’s been a long time in the planning, and everybody involved is excited about the next phase in the prison’s life.”

The initial works started at the beginning of May. The prison will remain open to the public providing access to Aislin’s Funhouse and Jailhouse Tours throughout the works, which are due to last 6 weeks.
