Key Stage 2 | Subject: History, English, Drama | Topics: Crime and Punishment | Session Type: Route-based
The Tower of London has, over the centuries, acquired a fearsome reputation as one of England's most notorious prisons, despite being built for a different purpose.
In this session, children will put themselves into a prisoner’s shoes. Where would they have been locked up? What was the Tower like for a prisoner? What crime might they have committed?
A costumed presenter will recount exciting stories from the Tower’s dark history, whilst exploring historic spaces originally used to hold prisoners.
