Her Majesty's Prison

Her Majesty's Prison Review

This prison was built in the 19th century to house runaway slaves and slaves who survived the wreck of the Trouvadore in 1841. After the slaves were granted freedom, the prison housed criminals and even modern-day drug runners until it closed in the 1990s. The last hanging here was in 1960. Now you can see the cells, solitary-confinement area, and exercise patio. The prison is open only when there is a cruise ship at the port.
