JULY 2021 UPDATE: Due to the historic nature of Oxford Castle & Prison with its enclosed spaces, and following government guidance we would expect our guests to continue to wear face coverings when visiting us. This ensures that we continue to provide a comfortable and confident environment for both our team and for your visit, allowing you to step inside and do 1,000 years of time…
Our doors are open and we’re ready to welcome you to Oxford Castle and Prison. Your safety and that of your family, as well as our team, is our highest priority. Therefore, with this in mind, we are still maintaining our enhanced COVID-19 safety measures.
We would recommend that our guests continue to check in to Oxford Castle & Prison via the NHS COVID-19 App. You can download the app here.
This means you can still enjoy a great day out with us! To find out more, click here to view our official company statement, or check out this video:

As you can see, we have thought very carefully about your safety and we’d encourage you to do the same. When you are with us, please can you observe to the below visitor attraction social etiquette so that we can all have an enjoyable experience with confidence.
We have worked with the Association of leading Visitor Attractions, British Association of Leisure Attractions and UK Hospitality to re-design our safe operating procedures so you can visit with confidence. The above steps are already being planned and put in place. We may add or take away a couple of steps, depending on Government guidelines as and when they are announced.
Please note: We have taken enhanced health and safety measures across our site for you, our other guest and our team members. An inherent risk of COVID-19 exists in every public place where people are present. By entering our attraction, guests accept they have a duty to take steps to ensure their own safety. All guests should behave in a safe manner we would ask you to leave for the safety of others. Please respect our team.
