Key Stage 2 | Subject: History | Topics: Crime and Punishment | Session Type: Route-Based
Despite not having been built as a prison, the Tower of London has, over the centuries, acquired a fearsome reputation as one of England's most notorious prisons.
In this session, pupils will put themselves into the shoes of a prisoner at the Tower. Where would they have been locked up? What was the Tower like for a prisoner? What crime might they have committed?
Pupils will think critically, ask perceptive questions and hear exciting stories of the Tower's dark history, told by a costumed presenter. Pupils can explore some of the historic space originally used to hold prisoners.
