‘Master Topcliffe’, has perfected the subtlety of inflicting just enough pain to extract a confession, but not too much to render his subject unable to speak!
Employed from medieval times and reaching its heights in the late Tudor and Stuart periods, torture was still used as late as the Georgian era.
This presentation is supported by torture items and period accurate equipment.
Suitable for ages 16 and over.
Booking is essential.
