  • Fantastic day out. Opted for the self tour that took almost 3 hours and was well worth the time as we got to check out ever nook and cranny. Really good too look around a recently occupied prison and getting to see it from both sides. Think they would benefit from having past inmates giving talks as well as guards this way you learn from both sides.
  • Booked the 2 hour guided tour, which turned into about 2:40 'cos our guide, Mick, was super chatty. A former officer at Shrewsbury Prison, Mick was excellent; friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed listening to his many stories of his time at the prison, and we definitely got our money's worth. The girl in the ticket office, Amy, deserves a mention too. Very smiley and welcoming. We were a minute or two late, and she sorted our passes and parking out swiftly and efficiently. Extremely glad we visited before the place is torn down, and I recommend you do the same before it's gone.
