An Informative, Eerily Fascinating Insight to Life - and Death - Behind Ba

Excellent tour and opportunities to wander around the prison alone before and afterwards. Eerie and atmospheric, the prison has an interesting history and we learnt a lot about prison life, some of the more notorious inmates, and the grim reality of capital punishment. Thoroughly recommended.
