‪Escape room highly recommended by teens and grown ups :)‬

‪My daughter and her friends spent her 15th birthday doing The Old Town Jail escape room today. They had an absolute ball, found it challenging and had lots of laughs with the lovely staff.
I can’t commend the staff enough for how welcoming and enthusiastic they are. It takes a lot to do a public facing job, especially during a pandemic and they do it so warmly and well. Thank you for a day we won’t forget, we will be back!‬

‪Perfect Outing with Suprising View‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪The Old Town Jail is definitely worth a visit and I really enjoyed my time.
I used the audio guide to go around the jail, which was interesting but was essentially a repeat of the information boards so I didn't use it the whole time.
At the moment you wander around the jail as a self-guided tour (usually it's a guided tour) but there is lots to see and learn about the history of the jail and the people who would've worked there and been imprisoned.

Highlights include the glass lift which takes you up to the top floor and then you can take stairs up to the roof. Unfortunately the day I visited it was raining so I couldn't see much but on a clear day you would get a 360 view of Stirling.

Don't forget to check out the gift shop which is stocked with some great books. I couldn't help myself and bought one about Scottish witches and the other about Scottish murders.

The staff are really friendly and I had a lovely chat about Scottish witches with one member of staff from Glasgow.

Check the website beforehand as you need to pre-book, although when I went it was really quiet so I think they allow walk-ins. Also only the ground floor is accessible.‬

‪Interesting Jail ‬
‪We both had a really good time in the Old Stirling Jail..

Found it very interesting.
Due to Covid just now, no actors telling the tale going round.

Downloaded the app on my phone. I didn't listen to the full thing-but the bits I did listen too was really interesting.

Good to support a local place. ‬

‪Toured the whole jail with audio‬
سبتمبر 2021
‪I had mixed feelings about the jail. It was nearly back up to the Castle, so I should have planned my times better to avoid climbing that hill twice. The displays were interesting, and the audio guide well done. But the time spent in each room was really long, and the audio was an exact repeat of the signage. Also, the tour has numbers so you can move correctly through the bldg and its various floors, but I got out of sync somewhere because the numbers were unclear about when to go up to the top of the building and start back down. I eventually figured myself out, but there was no one to ask, and nowhere to sit down in any of the rooms or hallways. It was a tiring visit, and I probably didn’t gather all I could have as my interest flagged. It’s true the view from the top was amazing.‬

‪A warm welcome and informative and well presented attraction with fantastic views.‬
‪I stumbled across Stirling Old Town Jail whilst exploring the city looking for the nearby castle.

Unsure what to expect both my friends and I were very impressed with how involved this attraction was. The front of house staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The jail has a variety of tour options, audio self guided, Apple/Android app self guided and you have the option not to have any guide at all. The attraction is quite large compared to others of a similar nature I’ve been to before.

It was the day before Hallowe’en and each room was subtly themed, enough to enhance the experience without detracting from the experience.

The information boards and lay out was comprehensive and engaging, the audio guides were quite in-depth and maybe a bit much for some people but if you stick with it, the whole history of the building, others nearby and the people that lived, worked and died in them is laid before you.

The whole attraction hits top gear when it comes to the exercise yard and the tower roof. Needless to say the views were worth the entrance fee on their own.

For those who like escape rooms, there is one on site, I didn’t have time to experience this personally, but the atmosphere of the location is certainly a good basis for one.

The venue offers concessions for NHS and similar organisations on production of valid ID which is a bonus if you qualify.

The staff clearly enjoyed working there and added to the experience.‬

‪Escape Room and Ghost Walk‬
العائلة • أكتوبر 2021
‪We had an excellent time at Stirling Old Town Jail recently. We did both the Escape Room and the Ghost Walk, both of which were fab. The Escape Room was very well thought out and we enjoyed piecing the clues together to solve the mystery. The props & gadgets were all brilliant and real fun, and our jailer Drummond played his part perfectly - Well Done.
The Ghost Walk was also fantastic, and despite the torrential weather our Hangman & Guide John Rankin kept us hanging on his every word - if you pardon the pun 😅 - He certainly looked the par, and he told the stories with a voice & menace that kept you totally engaged and wanting to hear more - if you dare. So interesting to hear what went on in Stirling Old Town, and visit parts you'd never go - especially the Graveyard, at night 👻 Very Well Done‬

‪Interesting building, the app for the audio tour had a few bugs which was irritating as it kept freezing and certain rooms would not play.‬

‪Escape Room - excellent‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the Old Jail Escape Room visit. A special mention to our jailer (Johnny?) whose timely (and necessary!) interventions were delivered politely and with good grace - and were very much appreciated.

We "escaped" with only 4 minutes to spare, and Johnny was very complimentary about our efforts despite the fact that we ourselves felt like a couple of complete dumplings at times.

Thoroughly recommended.‬

‪Well worth while.‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪This was an excellent way to stay dry on an extremely soggy day in Stirling.The audioguide was very good and explained what a new "State of the art" prison in the 19th century looked like.
It cannot have been a bundle of laughs to be in prison here,but a vast improvement on 20 prisoners to a cell in the Old Tolbooth prison down the street.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful.NB.If you need to store luggage ie only here for 1 day,they will store it for you for a small fee.‬
