Our tours run every 30 mins from 10.15am with our final tour at 5.15pm . The first part of the experience is an interactive performance tour which is recommended for all ages. You will then have the opportunity to visit our roof top observation tower for the best views in Stirling and explore the rest of the cells in your own time.
Most visitors spend between 45 minutes to 1 hour at the attraction, however, you are welcome to take your time and explore following the performance tour.
Adults: £7 Children/Concessions: £5 Kids under the age of 5 are free. Group discounts are available (see group ticketing page). Tickets can be brought at the Old Town Jail, the Visitor Information Centre or online here.
The Old Town Jail is open during the following dates in 2019: Easter 19 April-21 April, Summer 28 June-8 Sept, Half Term 12-20 Oct, Halloween 25-27 Oct (excluding 26 Oct)
Location and Parking
The Old Town Jail is located at the top of the historic Old Town just a short walk from Stirling Castle. We do have a limited number of free parking spaces behind the jail. Simply drive through the main archway beside the information centre and go around the left hand side of the Jail.
I would thoroughly recommend the tour of the old jail - this lasts approx 1hr including a trip to the top of the jail for some good photo opportunities of Stirling. The tour is handled by one guide/actor who plays several parts during the tour - one being the old jail governor, another being an inmate and also the last hangman.
