Yes I have been to prison its not something I openly admit to except in case it was pure luxury. I was luck enough to win a luxury night stop courtesy of Horse & Hound at the Malmaison Oxford which is a prison...
Malmaison hotel, Oxford
This Victorian prison has been converted into the lavish Malmaison hotel. Keeping in touch with its dark past, expect solid cast iron doors, heavy large bricks, and the ever recognisable prison-like staircases. But, don’t think you’ll be missing an inch out on luxury. Four poster beds, mini cinema system and a host of services at your disposal. You know you’re in for more than a treat.

We then went onto the Blenheim Palace Horse trials and watched the action ( this was part of the prize )
