Not v interesting
Ian_S

Just not very interesting. The audio guide was long and waffled on. No real detail on life in jail and only a v small part of the jail open to visit.

Ian it sounds like our performance tours might be right up your street when they return next season. Our audio tour is performed by our actors and does give a much deeper insight into the history of crime and punishment in Stirling including day-to-day life in the Jail. We are sorry the audio tour wasn't for you and wish you had spoken to us during your visit. You will see that we tend to get great feedback overall and understand that this just might not be everyone's cup of tea. All the very best, Geoff

Prison well worth a visit. Don't miss the view from the top.

Very interesting and enjoyable. The names and tally marks etched into doors fired up our imagination. The view from the top was truly amazing. Wasn't keen on the app. Preferred to read the posters which brought the prison to life. The guy on the desk was cheery, helpful and knowledgeable.

The staff member at the entrance was polite, friendly and very welcoming. She allowed us to start our tour earlier than we had booked, which was appreciated. The Jail itself is OK, and worth a visit. The best part is the view from the tower. We were able to access all the cells and listen to the stories in each of them. The audio tour kept us there longer than we would have been if we just walked round ourselves as once you have seen one of the cells, you’ve seen them all pretty much. It is well worth a visit, and isn’t expensive.

Loved the top view . Kids enjoyed that part best . Because we couldn’t do the performance tour the kids didn’t really enjoy the talks but grandparents loved it
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
It's great to hear that the grown-ups loved the self-guided audio tour and it sounds like the little ones will enjoy the performance tours when they return. I'm glad you all enjoyed the spectacular views and hope to see you all back again soon. Thanks, Geoff

Visit to old jail
Heather_A

Expected to see more of the jail but it was closed off which was disappointing waited too long to enter a cell due to many people queuing. If more of the jail would have been open the experience woul possible been better
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Heather in these uncertain times we must all learn to be a little more patient as we observe social distancing. We have reduced our capacity in the Jail and at times there will be a short wait as we space things out to keep everyone safe. The middle section of the Jail is used for offices although the reminder of the attraction provides an opportunity to explore original cells and of course visit our roof-top exercise area and observation tower. We do feel that one star is perhaps unfair in the current conditions but look forward to welcoming you back as things return to normal. Thanks, Geoff
