Gary Glitter leads a life of luxury as he moves to a new prison with ponds of exotic fish and expansive lawns, it has been learned.

The 74-year-old pedophile, real name Paul Gadd, recently moved from HMP Albany on the Isle of Wight to HMP The Verne on the Isle of Portland, Dorset, The sun reports.

He can play a giant chess set on the lawn, visit the Class C prison’s own miniature farm, or relax by a pleasure pool filled with koi carp.

The cells of the 120 inmates have a 20-inch flat-screen TV and tea / coffee maker, and criminals have their own door keys.

The prison, which houses only sex offenders, has a gym and a football field accessible in all weathers.

A source told The Sun: “They have special privileges because they are older prisoners considered to be well behaved.”

The source added: “It’s like a summer camp there. To think that some of these people raped children, the public would be disgusted to see how they are living.

“Because it’s all sex offenders together, they feel safe and there is no problem.”

The glam rock singer has been convicted of attempted rape, indecent assault and having sex with a girl under the age of 13 following investigations into historical sexual offenses.

The former artist fell dramatically out of favor when he was charged with historic child sex offenses.

He was convicted of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault and one count of having sex with a girl under 13 following investigations by Operation Yewtree.

He was sentenced to 16 years in prison in 2015, but is expected to be released in three and a half years, The Sun reported.

HMP The Verne, a former immigration removal center, holds 120 sex offenders but is expected to house 650 once its £ 33million upgrade is completed.

The Justice Department said: “As with all closed prisons, strict security measures are in place.”
