"Due to COVID, tour group size was limited, and areas for social distancing were well thought out and clearly marked throughout. The view from the top of the tower is amazing."

"I loved my visit here. It was an unexpected plus of my visit to Oxford. So full of history. I loved every second of it."

"Our tour guide Esther was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable and best of all, very funny. She gave us loads of interesting facts and made the tour a proper adventure, from the Tower to the crypt."

"Fascinating history and an amazing view from the top of the tower. Good to see handrails etc being cleaned after each tour."

Bernice Brown on Google Reviews, March 2020

"The numbers on the tour were kept small (so would recommend booking ahead!) and spacing was well organised so felt could maintain social distancing easily. Also saw a lot of cleaning if hand rails etc which was reassuring in these times! Would definitely recommend."

"The tour with Alex was really good and very interesting. The measures the Castle and Prison have taken to make the venue Covid safe are very good. It didn't change how good the tour was or make you miss out."
