Gift Shop at Oxford Castle Unlocked

 A medieval form of dollhouse, this castle comes in a number of parts or as a complete set and is sure to enthrall youngsters, who could be kept entertained for hours with this creation by Papo. The shop also stocks some great characters to inhabit your castle including knights in shining armour, the damsels in distress and even dragons!


Oxford is thought of by many as the literary capital of Britain so it is fitting that the Oxford Castle Unlocked shop contains a number of books which will help you explore the city and history better. From an in-depth look at the stories of Alice in Wonderland to a book exploring the haunted parts of Oxford, there's a book for everyone!

Plus, don’t forget to take a look at your mugshot as you’re released from the cells – what will your crime and punishment be..?
