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 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
