A Guided tour of Oxford Castle

Take a guided tour today and let the characters reveal their fascinating stories entrenched in the building’s 1,000 year history.

Led by one of our costumed character guides, the rich history of Oxford and the castle is revealed as you…

  • CLIMB the Saxon St George’s Tower, one of the oldest buildings in Oxford, and enjoy its stunning 360° panoramic views over the historic city of Oxford.
  • DESCEND deep underground into the dark atmosphere of the 900 year old crypt, the only surviving remains of St. George’s Chapel.
  • 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.

After your tour, you will be inducted into the castle’s prison and wider site where you will be able to explore at your own leisure.

Admission to the castle is by guided tour only.
