The Victorian Prison, within the grounds of Lincoln Castle, gives the perfect back drop to any study of Victorians or Crime and Punishment.
The Male and Female wings of the Prison, the exercise yard and the unique Chapel were built for this new ‘separate system ‘.
Discover how this system worked and how crime and punishment has changed over time.
For Key Stage 4 pupils an overview of Crime and Punishment in Victorian times along with a Wall Tour is a great support to GCSE studies.
This will give you chance to tour the prison and airing yard, discover the unique chapel and do the jobs that Victorian prisoners would have done (in costume!).
Take a crime and punishment focused tour of the castle walls and see where the hangings actually took place.
Our workshop sessions include the following:
You will also visit the airing yard and unique chapel as part of these sessions.
