From November – January we are running performance tours every weekend and our fascinating self-guided audio tours midweek proving a deeper insight into the history of Old Town Jail as you explore the building. You can find out more and book here – December weekends need to be booked below. Tours departing every 30mins between 10.15am and 6pm (last tour at 5.15pm).
This December Father Christmas defends his chimney heists in our rib-tickling immersive festive performance experience every Saturday and Sunday 2-17 December and daily from 27-29 December.
Our family friendly Escape Rooms are also available too.
As you explore the jail after your performance tour you can use a handset (or download the free app) to learn more about the history of the Jail. Visit the cells on the ground floor before heading to the Exercise Yard which is of course located – yes, you guessed it – on the roof! From here you will continue to our observation tower for breath-taking views of the Old Town, Ochils, Trossachs… on a clear day you can see as far as Edinburgh’s Forth Road Bridges!
The whole experience lasts between 45 and 90 minutes and is popular with all ages.
