Welcome to The Yorkshire Law & Order Museums. Our three sites within the centre of the city of Ripon, tell the unique story of the Liberty Courthouse, Prison and Victorian Workhouse. Find out about the people who ended up here and what happened to them next...

Together the three museums tell a sorry and interwoven story of Law and Order in times past. Malefactors would be incarcerated at the Prison or Police Station before being taken to the Courthouse for trial. If a custodial sentence or transportation were imposed a family might be deprived of its breadwinner, perhaps leading to its remaining members being forced to seek the 'relief' of the Workhouse.
