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.
We came across this place by chance and my girls wanted to go in. Not a bad price and took an hour to go round. We read quite a lot of the information and we all found it very interesting and horrifying! Lol. Lots of...More
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
As London tourist prices go this was very reasonably priced. In fact everything was reasonably priced including the guide and the souvenirs. And the photo opportunity at the end was FREE!!
Down a set of steep steps so not accessible to all. This tells the...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
Loved this museum! Not only was it informative and fun but it was also great value for money. If you are interested in the history of ordinary people and a taste for the macabre then this would be great for you. It's very interactive so...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
attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
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
