Tinsley House Immigration Removal Centre at Gatwick, was the first purpose-built detention centre in the UK. It was opened in 1996 and has a capacity of 135 people, including families and children, with 11,000 detainees going through it each year.

Next to Tinsley House the home Office have started building a new removal centre, called Brook House which will be a purpose-built secure facility with 426 male and female detention bedspaces to hold refused asylum seekers/persons 'Sans papiers' pending deportation from the UK.
