The Clink Prison Museum

The Clink Prison Museum is built upon the original site of the Clink Prison. The Prison dates back to 1144 making it one of England's oldest, if not the oldest Prison. Visitors will experience a hands-on educational experience allowing them to handle original artefacts, including torture devices, as well as the opportunity to view and hear the amazing stories of the inmates and the notorious Southbank. Owned by the Bishop of Winchester, The Clink Prison was used to control the Southbank of London known as 'The Liberty of The Clink'. This area housed much of London's entertainment establishments including four theatres, bull-baiting, bear-baiting, inns and many other darker entertainments.
