This was a bit of a mad one as well as a last minute decision...

Attempted this with some exploring pals at 4AM a few weeks back and had no luck as well as being shouted at and chased off by security. Bumped into a couple of fellow urbexer's in London who gave us the lowdown on how they just came away from it that morning with no problems. Shout out to @gingaurb for this one.

Having previously worked in a prison as an officer this was definitely high on my list to do. I won't go into history as it's been done several times already on here and easily found online. Although you can enjoy my little story..

After being told access, it was pretty easy. Spent a good hour or so in here.
(Half pictures are from my phone and rest are from my camera due to my camera carrier not joining us until later on in the explore ;) )
Every building was pretty similar so we took a while trying to find the pool and sports hall, however... in the process of this, 3 of us got caught by security.

The first guy was indian/asian and was quite nice. He was very calm and wanted to direct us out. Although in doing this he disappeared so we started to walk back the way we came in the opposite direction. Then another security guy caught us who wasn't as nice calling his radio team mates for "emergency first response units" ... like what ahahah. We hadn't been rude at all so I was very baffled by this?

We'd started to just walk back to leave where we got in as we didn't want to cause any trouble. They had barricaded the door we originally came in so of course we politely moved it out of the way so we could get out. Upon doing this, the security and I had a bit of a tiff informing him I work for the police so I know my rights. He asked to see my "warrant badge" which I don't own as I work for the police, I am not thee police.

During this the other two were left inside exploring the pool and sports hall... TYPICAL HAHA! We had a police helicopter arrive in search of the 5 of us and a police car out front. As we got away peacefully, we watched from a distance. Turns out police were very nice and reasonable to other two so it was a little extreme for a helicopter to come but hey-ho!

All is good, enjoy my limited pictures

Sounds like a good explore with a slightly dramatic ending! Does anyone have any plans for a return visit? I am a new poster to the forum with a little previous urbex experience. I am hoping to explore the Holloway site but would prefer to do it in a group!
