We had a hour to fill and found this place. It was fascinating, with lots of information available. There are items that can be touched and handled. It is very child friendly and although it is not large it is certainly worth a visit.

Tucked away next to the Golden Hinde, really atmospheric and nicely done inside. Lots of personal stories of prisoners inside to bring the prison to life, and plenty of torture instruments to marvel at. Definitely worth a visit - we spent abiut an hour there.

Great place!!! I've done the London Dungeon before... while that is entertaining albeit much more expensive... The Clink offers a non-touristy glamorized version of the life in prison, back in the day. Woman who was working was cheerful and so sweet. Definitely worth going here.

Visited with my 9 y.o who loved it. It’s all pretty gruesome stuff of course but much of the reality of the horror of the past went over his head. Interesting displays and very hands on exhibits. We spent about thirty minutes here but could...More

My 9 year old daughter and I loved visiting The Clink Museum. We liked wandering around the different rooms and feeling as if we were in an authentic old prison. We learned a lot, too, about the area and the times in which it existed....More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

I definitely wouldn’t advise taking a four year old to this museum, it is quite realistic, with scary sights & sounds & gory models. I personally don’t think under 10’s should go.

The only stair is the one leading down into the museum. It is an old building so it is not a flat concrete floor. I would say that if you can get down the front stairs you can easily get around in the museum
