Visit to the prison library at HMP Wandsworth [TG2v/HMPWandsworth]
HMP Wandsworth can currently hold 1628 prisoners and is one of the largest prisons in Western Europe. The prison was built in 1851, and the residential areas remain in the original buildings. Since 1989, there has been extensive refurbishment and modernisation of the wings, including in-cell sanitation, privacy screens for cells occupied by more than one prisoner and the more recent installation of in-cell electricity.
