Jubilee Crown Hunt

Honouring 70 years of Her Majesty The Queen’s Service

Having been an HM Prison for 400 years before its closure in 2013, Shepton Mallet Prison will be celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and we invite you to join us behind bars and take part in our Jubilee Crown Hunt.

Event Overview

Taking place from the 28th May – 5th June the Jubilee Crown Hunt is open to all ages and included within your Tour or Activity ticket. Upon arrival, grab your Crown Hunt form from the Visitor Centre, and let the hunt begin!

Scattered around the grounds, wings, corridors and cells are hidden crowns, with each containing a clue or riddle, you’ll need to solve the puzzle to unlock a tasty treat from our on-site Cafe!

There are three different levels of difficulty for this activity:

· Junior Officers (Ages 5-10)

· Officers (Ages 11-15)

· Governors (Ages 16+)
