The Clink Prison Museum

On the site of the original 'Clink' Prison, this museum examines some of London's unsavoury past from 1144 to 1780. The prison, known as 'The Clink' from the Century, was owned by successive Bishops of Winchester, and and from the 12 century until it's destruction in 1780, its inmates ranged from priests to prostitutes. The Clink also held inmates involved with many famous events including the Gunpowder Plot, The Babington Plot and even the sailing of the Mayflower.
