What we offer on a school trip
Shepton Mallet Prison is a Victorian jail decommissioned in 2013. We are passionate about maintaining the history and heritage of the site whilst providing a fantastic educational platform. Many of our current schools visit us to study crime and punishment through the ages, Victorian History, capital punishment, rehabilitation and the effects of crime on the victims and families. Our tours can be adapted according to your needs; workshops can be included along with a tour of the jail and a fully immersive ‘prisoner experience’.
In summary – if you give us a brief, we will do our upmost to fulfil it.
