Ghost Hunts

Organise your paranormal investigations and ghost hunts in one of the UK's most haunted locations!


With 1,000 years of history to our name, Oxford Castle and Prison has seen many faces come and go, but some remain long after their first departure…

Paranormal investigators and ghost hunters gain exclusive access to the Crypt, the base of 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 in the castle mound or the punishment cells in the exercise yard, please let us know in advance. Since both of these are outside of 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?

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