The Dana Prison, Shrewsbury: ‘the world’s most interactive prison tour’.
Jailhouse Tours conducts guided tours run by ex-prison officers who once managed these very wings. Our two-hour tours give you the opportunity to view this historic building and learn more about its history dating back to 1793.
Once inside, your journey will begin in the same way as that of a prisoner. Starting your sentence, you will be processed through reception before heading out to the wings and into the general population (gen pop). Your tour will take you to never-before-seen areas of the prison, where you will learn about its history, its inmates, daily life, visits and prison work as well as discover the truth behind the Dana’s grisly history with executions.
