Posted 22nd Jan

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Spend some time behind bars for the world’s most interactive prison tour.
For a fascinating insight into more than 400 years of history, you’ll follow an ex-prison guard (who once managed the very wings you’ll be walking) behind the scenes of at one of three historic prisons.

You’ll follow in the footsteps of those on the wrong side of the law. Starting your sentence, you’ll be processed through reception before heading out to the wings and into the general population. Visit never-before-seen areas of the prison, where you’ll learn about the inmates, daily life, visits and prison work as well as the grisly side of history complete with stomach-turning tales of execution.

If you’re feeling brave, there’s even the chance for a ‘Closed Cell’ experience, which involves entering cells and having the door locked behind you, hopefully the closest you’ll ever get to be a prisoner for real!

Choice of 3 locations:
Gloucestershire – Gloucester
Shropshire – Shrewsbury
Somerset - Shepton Mallet

You can go for free if you commit a crime, you also will spend more than 2 hours for the whole experience, including sleeping and eating
Do you have to bring your own spice?

Anyone taking up this deal needs locking up.

or visit the Clink Prison Museum in London for £8.

You'd actually be better off this way, no car parking fees, rent, food & utilities paid for for the term. Better than our pensioners get anyway!

Shouldn’t think that they would want to watch Corrie or Eastenders anyway
If you could visit a "working" prison and execute half of the inmates guests.

Parliament first.
Privisatuon of prisons.
Poor police funding.
Dishonest CPS and police disclosure.
DoJ consultation where convicts with sentences less than 6 months no longer being jailed.

Brilliant for students too! You can study at degree level in prison, im definitely thinking of it.
If the ex prison guard is a contractor from G4S, you wont be having no tour.
"Virgin Experience"? Usually involves them suing the NHS, or stuffing up our railways!

What's that got to do with not paying rent, utilities or food? A small increase compared to free stuff?

Just curious to see how the better off than homeless live... 3 meals a day, TV, Games room, Gym, education, roof over your head, warm bed etc etc... It's almost worth committing a crime these days but my luck i would get community service.

TV shared with other people who may not want to watch what you do - if your cell is unlocked long enough for you to watch it. You could be in your cell 23 hours out of 24 and possibly with a companion or two who could take a fancy to you. Depends what type of crime you commit whether you would get banged up.

71 suicides up to November last year, not everyone can take it.

Not voting hot as it's Virgin - but taking your unruly teenager around a prison and letting them be locked in might just be worth the money.
Just looked directly on the jailhouse tours site. Its £18 per adult if you book direct, (Oaps, students are£16 Children are £12.50 and a family ticket is a mighty Forty-Seven pounds fifty)
Interestingly the Gloucester site says Gloucester is now closed to the public. (I had a look as I visited there a while ago when they said it was closing as they are redeveloping the site )
They also do self guided tours for a couple of quid less, but having done the self guide of Gloucester when it was open and overheard some of the guilded tour I would say it was worth the extra. If you don't want to pay virgin, I vaguely recall getting a discount from their newsletter or flyer from the place itself.
