Oxford Castle & Prison

Apr 18 2019

The castle in Oxford has been brought to life at Oxford Castle & Prison. Visitors can enjoy a guided tour and meet past inhabitants of Oxford Castle & Prison and discover their true stories as you:

  • Climb the Saxon St George’s Tower, Oxford’s oldest building, and enjoy its stunning 360° view
  • Descend deep underground into the dark atmosphere of the 900-year-old Crypt
  • Explore the austere confines of the 18th-century Debtors’ Tower and Prison D-Wing
  • Scale the Mound of the 11th-century motte-and-bailey castle

Tours with one of the experienced costumed guides leave up to every 20 minutes from the admissions area in the Gift Shop. After your tour you will be inducted into Prison D-Wing and the wider castle site where you will be able to explore at your own leisure.
