HMYOI Aylesbury is a Young Offenders Institute in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, northwest of London. It has the capacity to holds 444 young male inmates.
Aylesbury opened in 1847 as a county gaol, but was changed in 1890 to a women’s prison. In 1959, the prison converted to a male prison, then in 1989, the prison converted to a YOI. Aylesbury holds the longest sentenced young offenders.
The residential section is built of A to E wings and G wing holding mainstream prisoners, and an F wing holding vulnerable prisoners in an “enabling environment”.
In the report of an unannounced inspection in June 2015, it was stated on many occasions that the safety and purposeful activity was inadequate, and did not live up to the “healthy prisons” standard.
On basic level, visiting hours are between 15:00 and 16:15 every day. On standard or enhanced level, the hours are from 14:15 to 16:15.
