The Marshalsea Prison
Marshalsea was known for its imprisonment of the poorest of London’s debtors and became particularly well known through the work of Charles Dickens. Today, we can still see the two gate arches and original brick wall in Southwark, London.
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.
