On May 7th (bank holiday) HMP Shrewbury & HMP Shepton Mallet will be taking a trip back in time.
The History Day brings prison characters from years gone past to life. Visitors are able to walk through the site on a self-guided tour, experiencing first hand the life prisoners and guards had, from Georgian times until the prisons' closures in 2013. Visitors can interact with the characters, ask questions and learn about prison life and the prisons' grizzly history.
Gates will open at 10:00 and the day finishes at 16:00. Tickets are £15 for adults, £9.50 for children (5-15, under 5's free), £13 for students and concessions and £43.50 for a family (2 adults and 2 children).
