Oxford Prison Life

The Malmaison in Oxford is a former prison now converted into a luxury hotel. The prison has occupied the site since medieval times and was only closed to inmates in the 80’s, although judging from some of the “guests” perhaps some of the “lifers” couldn’t be moved. That’s a joke by the way… The hotel comes highly recommended and has excellent sound proofing.

Wandering the corridors you can almost hear the “Norman Stanley Fletcher…” speech from the TV series “Porridge” ringing in your ears..¬†Of course the only real difference between a luxury hotel and a prison is in the hotel they give you the key on the way in…
