Stirling Old Town Jail is a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award winner, proudly claiming its spot as the top-rated, family-friendly, and truly entertaining independent visitor attraction in the heart of Stirling’s Old Town. Join us for a tour that’ll have you begging for parole – or at least a second helping of our criminal charm and prison reform wisdom!
We are open daily with live performance tours departing every 30mins between 10.15am and 6pm (last tour at 5.15pm).
Following your performance tour you can continue to explore the Jail with our audio handsets (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! Our family friendly Escape Rooms are also available.
The whole experience lasts between 45 and 90 minutes and is popular with all ages.
