Guided Tour of Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast
From US$ 9.72
Overview
Explore the Crumlin Road Gaol and gain insight into Belfast’s criminal history on this 1-hour tour. Follow a guide through the infamous Crumlin Road Gaol and learn of the many unsavoury characters once held here. Visit the reception buildings — where new arrivals were processed — and follow the prisoners’ footsteps from the courthouse to the jail. See the various different wings from a high vantage point, experience life locked inside one of the cells and see where prisoners spent their final days before hanging for their crimes.
What to Expect
On your guided tour of Crumlin Road Gaol, visit the reception processing building, where incoming prisoners were processed and washed.
Walk along the infamous tunnel linking the gaol to the Crumlin Road Courthouse, and take in the view of the gaol's center circle, which branches out into four wings: A, B, C, and D. You can explore cells where up to four prisoners at a time would live, plus see the 'Condemned Man's' cell, where a prisoner spent his final days before being executed by hanging.
Your tour ends in the execution chamber and drop cell.
