Private Event Activities Somerset

We can offer tours and activities packages combined with catering and refreshments for those wishing to utilise all the services we offer. Or you can simply hire the prison space and put together your perfect event, safe in the knowledge that it will be one to remember!

We can help in the planning and preparation of your event, whether it be booking live music, sorting transport and accommodation, we are available to help in all aspects of event creation.

Our ex-Prison Officers will guide your guests through 400 years of prison history, or you can challenge your guests to an escape room, followed by archery in our purpose-built activity space? The choice is yours!
