Kingston Penitentiary Tour Tickets On Sale Monday

Tickets for the Kingston Penitentiary Tours go on sale online at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 24.

A limited number of walk up tickets will be available each day to accommodate walk up customers and will be available on a first come first serve basis.

Tours begin on May 9 and run until October 29.

This year you can choose from two different tour options: Standard and Premium.

The standard 90 minute tour route, available in English and French, has been updated and modified with reinstalled furniture in the cell and segregation ranges to help you to imagine the lives of former inmates.

Plus the Regional Treatment Centre's Gymnasium has been added to the tour and features an impressive mural dedicated to the inmates and staff of Kingston Pen.

The new Premium Tour is about two and a half hours long and a little more expensive.

The premium tour offers a more intimate view of the facility, with smaller group sizes (up to 10 people), and offers the chance for more one-on-one interactions with the retired Correctional Service Canada staff stationed at 6 posts throughout Kingston Penitentiary.

This tour includes most of the standard tour stops plus the canvas and upholstery shops, school, recreational yard, Regional Treatment Centre Gymnasium, cell range, hospital, main gymnasium and laundry room plus historic, architectural and criminological components to your visit giving a more in-depth and immersive experience.
