The Clink Prison Museum is on the site of the original Clink Prison ("possibly the oldest mens prison and probably the oldest womens prison in England") which held prisoners from the early Tudor years until 1780. Shakespeare visited an old schoolfriend here. The museum in Clink Street can be booked for private parties.
