HMP Gartree originally opened in 1965. Its first incarnation was as a category C training prison, before it became a maximum security category A establishment. However, in 1992, it changed to a category B prison, catering for inmates serving IPP sentences (indeterminate sentences). It is located in Market Harborough and has a capacity of 707. Many inmates in the prison are serving life sentences. If you’re visiting HMP Gartree and would like directions, please refer to the map on this page.

Prison Phone have been saving inmates at HMP Gartree money on their calls from the prison to any UK mobile phone since 2013.
We do this by allocating a dedicated and secure local number to your mobile phone, this means when the inmate at Gartree prison calls the new local number we have provided they will be charged at just the local landline rate (around 10p per minute) rather than the standard mobile rate (which is around 40p per minute).
This in turn helps to stretch the inmates PINS phone credit further and reduces the amount you need to send in for them to top up!
