Abstract: The phrase ‘dark tourism’ was coined by Lennon and Foley (2000) to describe a relatively new kind of sightseeing; one that attends sites of death, disaster and despair. This essay intertwines personal memoir and scholarly critique to reflect on prisons as places for dark tourism, and imprisonment more generally. Its fundamental contention is that as tourist attractions, former prisons have complex histories that resist easy digestion.
