Robert United Kingdom

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Great audio tour and given this prison was only closed in 1984 it shows how tough it was. A great experience.

Josette K

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2017

It was not worth the time or the money.
