Can children visit prison?

Yes. HMP Barlinnie has a play area in the Main Visit Room that is run by PlayStation children’s charity. Check their timetable to find out when the play area is staffed. In addition, HMP Barlinnie also has child focused visits which take place in a different visit room with more facilities for children. Check at the prison for more details – usually prisoners can access this type of visit once per month, more often if there is space.
