This walk starts from Blackfriars Station (Mainline + District & Circle) and finishes at Mount Pleasant. Bus 63 goes back to the start. Travelcard zone 1 Have you read of prisons such as Bridewell and the Fleet and wondered where they were located? The chances are that you have walked past their sites without realising it. This walk takes in places where you could have found yourself behind bars in the past.


There are plenty of places for refreshments on the route


This linear walk is about 1 miles pavement walking I first called this walk 'Sites and Remains of some London Prisons' but this seems a more appropriate title as it also includes courthouses and execution sites. There is a companion walk around Southwark. [Route & what to see]
