Is too expensive and the tour inside the castle is short, and even includes the jail don't worth the money.
This Castle turned Prison is excellent. Such great value for money and the tour guide element is great. One of the best attractions I have been too for a long time.
Oxford Castle unlocked is set in a stunning new development of the former Oxford Castle. The tour guide was informative and amusing, and the overall experience, both the tour and the self-guided areas were very interesting with some good hands-on interpretation. The padded cell in particular was very sobering. The café was good, with enthusiastic and helpful staff, and I... More
Went with my wife daughter and granddaughter (13) for the first time, and we only live 40 minutes drive away. Near the very center of Oxford this tour gave us not only a wonderful view of Oxford from the top of tye Saxon tower but also a very deep insight in to the history of the castle, from Saxon times...

My partner and I visited the Oxford Castle Unlocked attraction over the recent Easter weekend on Thursday, considering how busy it was around the Broad Street end of Central Oxford the Oxford Castle Unlocked attraction was so nice to visit without the masses of crowds and noise.

Fabulous place with so much history - the caverns were particularly atmospheric and we were lucky with a guide (the executioner) whose style of delivery kept things light and interesting. A must if you are in Oxford and well worth the fee - the kids will love it! Great little gift shop to browse in afterwards.
Our tour guide was very informative, was dressed authentically and was very comical. I found it interesting to see the old punishment/torture aids and to read about the way in which the prison regime operated in the past. It was a very enlightening experience.
We visited Oxford Castle unlocked on Wednesday 16th April, and had a fantastic experience. Our tour guide (Prisoner D100) was funny, informative and really brought the history of the castles past to life. He told vivid stories which kept us interested, and the views rom the Saxon tower are like no other in the city. The whole day was excellent.... More
One of the best castle tours I've been on. Our tour guide was amazing; she was very entertaining, informative and kept us laughing. The castle alone is impressive, but the added stories and information really helped bring it to life. The museum exhibit was filled with loads of interesting displays and artifacts. Definitely a must if you're in Oxford!
