"We had a great time at Oxford Castle. The tour was very interesting and Steven our tour guide was very engaging and enthusiastic. So much fascinating history to find out about. Would definitely recommend!"

Becky D on TripAdvisor, November 2021

"This was an excellent tour, expertly guided by Natalia who really made it come alive. The view from the tower top is stunning and the remains of the prison fascinating."

Chairman C on TripAdvisor, November 2021

"This was hands down the best thing we did in Oxford. Our tour guide Stephen was fantastic, and the history was so interesting and unusual, quite different to a lot of other castle tours because of the jail element. There's plenty to see, and lots of interactive exhibits which we enjoyed. We went as part of our Halloween activities and it did not disappoint, I would recommend to anyone."

Jess on TripAdvisor, October 2021
