Cell 5 & 6

Enjoy trying on stab vests, capes and police helmits. Dress up, have fun with your friends and take masses of photos.

Everybody loves it. Send us your pictures.

Visitors may wish to try on some of the items of uniform kept in this cell. Note the weight of the ‘stab proof’ vests. Cells five and six are in fact half cells with cell six providing access to the corridor running behind the male cells. During the Mods and Rockers era each Bank Holiday in the summer would see all the cells and this corridor packed with prisoners. 151 persons were arrested on one day alone!  It was a major task to keep the rival factions apart.
