Oxford Castle Unlocked
Discover 1,000 years of Oxford’s history. Oxford Castle Unlocked is a visitor attraction with a past stretching far beyond your imagination. For hundreds of years the site has held both famous and infamous residents, serving time as a religious site, a home for royalty, a centre of justice and as the County Gaol.
Led by a costumed character guide, the rich history of the castle will be revealed. Climb the Saxon St George’s Tower, descend deep underground into the Crypt, explore the Prison D-Wing and scale the Mound of the 11th century motte-and-bailey castle.
Tours with an experienced costumed guide 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.
