What people are saying:

Because it took some time to pick up the car in Toronto, it was just over five o'clock when I arrived at Kingston Prison, so I could only take a look outside. The prison is next to Lake Ontario, with unobstructed views of the lake. We jokingly call it the most beautiful prison in the world. The area of the prison should be small, with a dedicated parking lot.
