Kingston Pen Standard Tour
Step inside the walls of Canada’s oldest penitentiary and explore the living and working areas, some dating back to the 1830s. Hear the personalized accounts from former staff and learn about the history and the daily routines, including stories of escapes, riots and everything in between on this 1.5-hour guided tour.
Every guest must have a ticket including children 0-4. Those 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian.
