Fodor's Review

This atmospheric fortified medieval gateway, with a stunning Tudor ceiling, was a debtor's prison for 150 years and now holds a motley assortment of items relating to Tudor and Stuart times, displayed among 16th-century graffiti by former prisoners. Child-size replicas of authentic 16th-century armor that can be tried on, as well as the opportunity to make brass rubbings, make it popular with kids. You can take in a view of Winchester from the roof.
