This museum provides an interesting perspective into the history of the ‘clink’ prison. We enjoyed our visit here and would recommend it for families with children.

Stumbled across this museum by accident but well worth a visit. Gruesome but entertaining too - good balance of hands-on, information and exhibits. Fun free photo at the end. Well worth a visit.

A mix between an old prison and a fair house of horror.Interesting information,old torture instruments,realistic false beheaded people,all of this accompanied by a horror movie sound background.No need more than 30-40 minutes to see it all.

Happen down the alleyway that leads to The Golden Hinde. This little gem is just round the corner from Vinopolis and close to the ruins of the Bishop's Palace - the medieval bling palace of the onetime big cheese of the rebel Borough. One of...More

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

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
