Have you always wanted to visit the Prison Gate in the dark? This year, the centuries-old prison will open for four evenings with a program full of exciting stories and a pub quiz.

Scary by night

Did you know that in the past - despite the thick walls and double metal bars - some people escaped from the Prison Gate? You can listen to their stories during a tour. And what do you actually know about crime and punishment? You can test your knowledge during the hilarious Prison Gate Pub Quiz.
