Visiting Information

You MUST arrive 30 minutes prior to your allocated visit time to allow processing, failure to do so will mean you will be denied entry.

You MUST give notice of a visit 48 hours before.

Entry process: All visitors will be subject to searching, and drugs detection dogs are in use.  All adult visitors will have their biometric (photo and fingerprint) information captured.  This is removed periodically once a visitor has not been for a period of time.

 Identification: On your first visit you must bring with you a copy of a proof of address and photo ID.  On every visit afterwards photo ID must be produced or two forms of ID (in the event of ID systems failure, you will not be permitted to enter the prison unless you can provide photographic ID).
