Booking on-line
You can now book visits to this prison on-line without a Visiting Order (VO).
You will need the prisoner’s full name, date of birth, prison number and prison.
Provide three alternative visit slots and you will get a confirmation email within three days.
It is still be possible to book visits by phoning the booking line but the new system should do much to overcome the frustration and waiting on the phone for hours that is currently experienced although if you are looking to book at short notice it may still be better to telephone where possible.

Arriving at Everthorpe

There are toilets in the Visitors' Centre but no other facilities so it is a good idea to take a drink with you.

The Visitors' Centre is open from 12:30 and you should arrive in plenty of time for your visit. If you arrive after 15:30 you will be refused entry.

The Visitors' Centre opens at 09:00 for Sunday morning visits.

Moving to Visits

When the Visit Room is ready visitors are taken over to the prison in batches on a first come first served basis so the first arrivals move to visits first.

Make sure you have nothing on you which is not allowed otherwise you will have to return to the Visitors' Centre which will waste time on your visit.

You can take £10 per adult visitor plus £10 for the prisoner to buy refreshments. This can be in paper money or coins.

Adult visitors will have a special hand-stamp to show they are visitors.



All visitors to Everthorpe are subject to searching; this is very much like the searches at a domestic airport.

Visitors are searched by staff of the same gender but men may be searched by female staff unless they object.

Children and babies may also be searched; this is done with the parent/guardian present by female staff.

Passive drugs dogs are used. These are trained not to bark or jump up and will just walk past or around visitors. If you have a child who is frightened of dogs let the staff know beforehand.

Religious headwear may be searched. If this is done it will be by staff of the same gender and in private. Visitors will be given ample time to refix their headwear.

Everthorpe does not use biometrics and does not photograph visitors.



Children of all ages are welcome to visit Everthorpe; however parents are responsible for their behaviour at all times and they must be kept under constant control.

There are no facilities for children in the Visitors' Centre or Visits Hall although we understand that a children's play area was under construction and should be available after March 2012.

Everthorpe allows prams and buggies into visits; you can also take spare nappies and a baby feeding bottle; they will provide warm water for warming milk or drinks.

You may breast fees babies if you wish.

Both Visitors' Centre and Visit Room have baby changing facilities.
