Hidden beneath the streets of Clerkenwell lay the remains of a once-feared institution of punishment. The Clerkenwell House of Detention has been a prison since 1617. The current vaults date from the Victorian prison of 1845.
Inside, you will experience infamous, potently atmospheric and cavernous places.
Here is a rare opportunity to take a tour of the prison. Led by expert guides, you will be able to see the cells, corridors, stairwells and inter-connecting walkways – including some that have very rarely been seen by the public.
Previous productions to have made use of the Clerkenwell House of Detention include Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr (representing the tunnels below Westminster), Spooks, The Secret Diary of a Call Girl and St Trinian’s 2.
