  • A really well done use of this historically important facility. We were a Heritage Society group and booked the personal tour which was excellent. Wondered what we would do for 2 hours but turned out information packed the whole way. Cafe staff were super helpful for my wife's gluten intolerance and the food was fresh and wholesome. Final 5 star finish was to speak with the fine and famous gentleman Jackie Stewart, long retired prison warden.
  • Really enjoyed our visit, very educational, got a real sense of the reality of prison life for prisoners and prison officers. Kids loved the headphones.Staff very professional and friendly . Was lucky to meet and talk to Jackie in the gift shop. Highly recommend
