"Probably one of the best tour of any kind we have done. £30 for both of us for an hour guided tour was great value."

"Emily the lady who did the tour was just absolutely brilliant. So enthusiastic and the icing on the cake. The castle and prison are beautiful and Emily just made the day!"

"A guided tour explained the history of the castle from the time of William the Conquerer to its more recent use as a prison. Lots of really interesting stories from different parts of the building's history"

"Me and my partner came to Oxford for our anniversary weekend and we’re so glad that we made it to the Oxford castle and prison as part of the trip! It was really well organised with the tour and then the free exploration afterwards. We especially loved the mug shot part of the experience!"

"A great historical experience for 5 plus aged kids and adults alike. The tour guide Emily was in character and very knowledgeable. Prompting for any questions would have added to the excellent experience."
