Clink Prison Museum

Museum in The South Bank

This one-time private jail, known as the Liberty of the Clink, was used to detain debtors, prostitutes, thieves and numerous Protestants and Catholics during the Reformation. The museum relates the story of its most (in)famous inmates and explains at length – with props, storyboards and original objects – the many ways they could be tortured. Not suitable for children under seven years.
