Such great history within this building. A must see place when in London. We heard that you can also book a guided tour which would also be excellent

Spent a fascinating afternoon at this interesting, educational and, at times, gory, museum. Lots of hands on, and the free picture at the end makes it even better value. Well worth the time and effort to visit. Some fascinating stories behind how punishment was dealt...More

Hands on, interactive educational fun (if that's the right word) enjoyed it more than the natural history museum.

The Clink is worth the visit if you have a small time period to fill. My kids enjoyed it - it is grisly and perfect for teenagers. However it took all of 30 minutes to whip thru.

Much more than meets the eye, we spent much longer than expected in the Clink finding out informative facts and looking at authentic exhibits - a great little activity and very god value for money.

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.

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
