Finding Newgate’s Forgotten Cells

Br Our tour begins at the location of the now lost Newgate Prison.

Meet the Infamous Inmates of Newgate

Br Our black cab winds its way through the streets of London, painting a picture of the famous personalities that once roamed the corridors of Newgate. From William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, imprisoned for his refusal to remove his hat in court, to Daniel Defoe, held captive for crafting anti-church pamphlets, Newgate’s roster of inmates is as fascinating as it is gruesome.

Step Inside the Elegant Viaduct Tavern

Br As we cross the cityscape, our cab pulls up at the elegant Viaduct Tavern that lies across from Newgate Prison. Stepping inside its grandeur marks a stark contrast to the gloom of the prison it neighbours. Originally established as a refuge for the labourers working on the nearby viaduct bridge, it soon transformed into a premier gin palace in the heart of the city. But don’t get too comfortable in its opulence, as we venture beneath the tavern to reveal the dark secret it conceals. Br

Unearth the Secret Dungeons of Viaduct Tavern

Rumours suggest that a hidden tunnel once connected these cells to the main Newgate Prison across the street— a thrill that only adds to the allure of the Viaduct Tavern. Br
