Private Tours

Dive into the history of law and (dis)order on Bow Street with a one-hour private tour of the Museum. Led by an experienced member of the Museum team, you will explore how Bow Street, an unremarkable thoroughfare at the heart of London’s theatreland, became synonymous with criminal justice for almost 300 years.

Groups will enjoy exclusive access to handle objects once used by Bow Street officers and be able to step inside the building’s original 19th-century cells to discover what life was like working in one of London’s most famous police stations. 

Subject to dates and availability the tour may also include a look inside Court No. 1, the location where some of London’s most famous criminal cases were heard, including the Kray Twins and the Suffragettes.
