my wife and I were in inverary for our honeymoon and we visited the jail, it is the best attraction around for miles, I was very dubious before I got inside, we were in for around 3 hours and we loved every part of it, we will be going again when our son is a little bit older

Fancy a trip to Inveraray Jail ? Don't bother , Just returned from here and feel violated being charged £25 entry for 2 adults and one child. How some people took 90 mins to walk round here is beyond me.It is a lot smaller than i expected, The bulk of the building is empty rooms with posters on the wall. 2 members of staff in uniform who really didn't seem interested to be honest. The small amount of exhibits that are here are really quite interesting though . I would say 30 minutes tops to walk round and see the whole place . The shop at the exit is a total rip off as well , £2 for a tiny bag of sweets is not on. £25 entry fee would be better spent elsewhere i'm afraid. Been there once and won't be back.

Good and informative trip round a well preserved jail and courtroom.Staff friendly and knowledgable.
A wee bit pricey for what you get and shop full of tack

This is the second time in two years we have visited with our three children, aged 3, 5 and 6. There really is something for everyone - from the gruesome stories, the cranking machine, the incredibly realistic courtroom, the whipping table and photo opportunities galore. Loved the young prisoner in the outdoor exercise area - very entertaining. Will now wait a few years before we return, but will definitely be back.
