Charity & Recreational Groups

A perfect day trip out at Shepton Mallet Prison for your group

From the moment your group step through the giant prison gates, they’ll know that they are in for a truly real-life experience, without the gimmicks.

Very few people get the opportunity to experience prison until they are sent there for committing an offence. We offer your group the opportunity to visit a real prison shining a light on history from 1625 to the present day.

Visit Includes

  • Group 19 Tailor-made Programmes
  • Group 9 Q&A
  • Group 8 Prison Tour
Shepton Mallet Prison Charity Trips

Your two-hour no holds barred tour showcases life inside. Tour guides with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the jail will take your group through the traditional prison wings, furnished cells, healthcare, segregation, prisoners’ kitchen, visits, hangman’s bedroom and finish in the execution room.

Who were the infamous inmates, how many escaped, when was the last hanging, how do drugs get into jail, all are just a handful of questions your group may want to ask.

Whether you are a group organiser for a W.I, Rotary Club or U3A group, as long as you have 15 members or more, you will receive a group discount on the tour.
