Tales of the Old Gaol House
Let your imagination run riot as your explore King´s Lynn´s 1930s police station and into the old cells where smugglers caught by the revenue men of the Custom House would be thrown. Meet a drunken teddy boy locked up for the night, and hear the true stories of the town´s highwaymen, murderers and robbers. Hear the sounds and smell the smells of prison life two centuries ago, and see how it feels to be locked up in a dank cell or trapped in the stocks in the town´s market square.
