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. Enjoy coach trips at Shepton Mallet Prison.

Very few people get the opportunity to experience prison - unless they are sent there for committing an offence! We offer coach companies the opportunity to visit a real prison shining a light on history from 1625 to the present day. From the moment you arrive on site, you'll experience a coach trip like no other, set within our immersive and historical setting.

Prison Tours at Shepton Mallet

Your two-hour, no holds barred tour showcases life inside. Tour guides with an encyclopedic knowledge of the jail will take your group through the traditional prison wings, furnished cells, exercise yard, treadwheel building, segregation, old gate lodge, and finish in the execution room.

Who were the infamous inmates? How many escaped? When was the last hanging? How do drugs get into prisons? These are all are just a handful of questions your group may want to ask.

All our coach companies get a discounted rate when they bring a group of 15 people or more. You have the freedom of booking your own slot and having an ex-prison officer exclusive to your group, for a completely unique experience.
