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.
Wormwood Scrubs Prison
Constructed using convict labour, HMP Wormwood Scrubs was opened in 1891 and is still operational today. This viewpoint will explore the building of Woodworm and how it obtained its rather unusual name.
The Tate Gallery in London stands in the same spot where Millbank prison once was. It is rumoured the red bricks were taken from the old prison and repurposed in the building of the Tate Gallery.
