Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre is adjacent to Harmondsworth detention centre and Heathrow Airport, London.

It opened in August 2004. It is the first purpose built Immigration Removal Centre to mirror prison conditions for detainees. The design of the centre is modeled on a high security, Category B criminal prison with wings running into a central area. Each cell is designed to hold two detainees. There is a toilet built into the cell which is only half partitioned and does not have a door, not affording detainees proper privacy. The capacity is 308 persons.

Local Campaign and Support Network

The London NoBorders group campaigns for the closure of Colnbrook.

The London Detainee Support Group provides support for and coordinates visitor groups to
detainees at Colnbrook.
