The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Southwark
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.

Visited this small but excellent museum tucked away on the south bank. Good fun with lots of information and some excellent life sized diorama's to keep the kids interested. There is some reasonable graphic descriptions of torture devices so beware if you are of a nervous disposition. Reasonable value and good fun.

Visited yesterday with my 11 year old son and we loved it. The gentleman who met us was so helpful and really made my son’s day with a special search for a mouse….. such fun and good value for money plus a little bit educational too! Definitely worth a visit

Went in here whilst in local area. £8 for an adult seemed fair as it’s not a massive museum. It is filled with lots of information and nice that you can take photos throughout. Learnt lots of information about London that I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t gone in here. A good place to spend a little time.

Really boring. Really short. Lasts about 20 minuets and there isn’t a highlight. Thought it would be like London Dungeons, which is interesting and fun and you get a lot for your money. This consists of a few old torture devises and some bad fake heads. No people in character. Go to London Dungeons unless you like boring bad experiences.

There is much to learn here about prison life in England hundreds of years ago. There are also an impressive range of torture instruments on display. Worth a visit.
