Booking Information

  • Children under 5 years of age will not be permitted access to St George’s Tower due to health and safety regulations.
  • Visitors unable to climb the tower may wait at the bottom with a guardian and watch our “Story of Oxford Castle” video. Once the tour group returns from the Tower, you are then able to rejoin your group as the tour continues. To find out more about this policy, click here to view our access information.
  • Due to the historical nature of the building Prams & Pushchairs do not fit through our doors, so they need to be left in the reception area where they will be looked after bya member of our team.
  • We are unable to offer left luggage facilities due to security reasons and lack of storage space.
  • Pre-booking is recommended as capacity is limited.
  • Please note that Tesco vouchers cannot be used when booking online.
