Very interesting museum detailing the history of the old prison and medieval Borough. The exhibits were a bit text-heavy but covered the history in an engaging way and included several reconstructions using models

It was very informative plus with all the instruments and actual representatives of brass handcuffs etc, not forgetting the sound effects of mourners. However, this is not for the faint of hearts, these information given are quite detailed, with pictures accompanying.

Very interesting if you’re into history and things like that. Even more so that it has original things in there. Very small and doesn’t take long to go around, at the end you can have your photo taken as many times as you like and...More

Overall the exhibits along with the information/explanations were awesome. The staff were friendly and I was allowed to spend as much time as I needed looking through the exhibits. Difficult to believe that people were able to survive for very long in the prison. Before...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

I’m sure there was a code on the receipt that was given after photo taken. You needed to log on and enter code.

I wouldn’t take a 4 year old there are heads on spikes.... I don’t like these at all...and torture equipment. I think a10 year old would love it , especially if they have seen horrible histories

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
