Outlander & Sam Heughan. Jamie Fraser is in fictional Wentworth Prison, the real Linlithgow Palace. What do you know about it?

Wentworth Prison is a fictional castle located in the Scottish Borders. Jamie Fraser stands trial there and is sentenced to hang… tonight! Is Wentworth a place to die? What can Jamie see from its windows? What can Claire and Dougal see when they were approaching to it to rescue Jamie?

According to Diana Gabaldon’s novels, Wentworth Castle is constructed of greenish Argyll granite, with walls at least three feet thick. Over the time, additions were made until the fortress covered about two acres of ground. It could house three hundred prisoners (Redcoats were terrible), in addition to a garrison of forty men plus their commander. Huge and unassailable!

In Outlander TV show, the real Linlithgow Palace was used to set Wentworth Prison. The ruins of Linlithgow Palace are situated in the town of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, conveniently placed between Stirling and Edinburgh. Built and developed over two centuries by successive Stewart kings of Scotland, it was one of the principal residences of the monarchs in the 15th and 16th centuries, but it was burned out in 1746, and now it’s a museum.

Linlithgow Palace stands on a low green promontory overlooking a small inland loch. Still today, it was a monumentally impressive quadrangular palace, with four ranges grouped around a central courtyard. At its center stood an impressive fountain. Will the gallows be close to it? James I’s great hall dominated the east quarter. The royal chapel and royal apartments added by James IV (1488–1513) graced the south and west quarters.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
