The Tower of London
Although never officially a prison, the Tower of London has held hundreds of London’s most dangerous prisoners. Like the story of the Tower itself, its role as prison is a varied one.
The original building of Birdewell, London’s first house of correction, was largely destroyed in the great fire of London. However, original architecture can be found at the entrance to an otherwise unassuming Unilever building on new bridge street.
