Ghost Hunts

If you are a Ghost Hunt organiser looking to bring your guests to our uniquely historical site, Oxford Castle & Prison offers an unbeatable package and many years of experience as hosts.

Ghost Hunt Package

By booking the castle at the Ghost Hunter’s rate you are welcome to use the Crypt, St George’s Tower, the D-Wing of the prison and the first two floors of Debtors Tower. If you would like to use the well-chamber of the castle mound as well as the punishment cells in the exercise yard, please let us know in advance. Since both of these are outside the main buildings we cannot guarantee access.

Booking as a Ghost Hunter also includes free tea and coffee for your guests, and the use of Castleyard Café for briefings and breaks. You also get a free historical tour from one of our guides, who will show your guests the most interesting and important aspects of the thousand-year-old site.

Sleepover Option

What is more exciting – or terrifying – than spending a whole night in one of the most haunted buildings in England?

The sleepover package includes private hire of the Castle from 9pm to 8am and everything included in the Ghost Hunt package, plus a breakfast of pastries, fruit, juice and tea/coffee.
