Shrewsbury Escape Room-The Cell
School Trips @ Jailhouse Tours
Shrewsbury Prison is operated by Jailhouse Tours. It is a Victorian decommissioned prison (the last inmates left in 2013). It is run as a tourist attraction and is a popular venue for schools and colleges. We run private guided tours which are led by the officers who worked these very wings for many years and new for this academic year is the Escape Room. Your students will need to work in a team, usually 4, to crack the codes and solve the puzzles to escape. The escape room can be booked as a solus activity or in conjunction with a guided tour
