Fodor's Review

To learn about the grim life of a Victorian prisoner, head to the old jail, built in 1829 by Joseph Hansom (1803–82), who was also the designer of the Hansom cab. Inside you can wander the claustrophobic corridors and view the original cells—including the one that housed prisoners awaiting execution.
