We were on a long trip and used Oxford to break the journey up a little.
To my shame (and having been a regular business visitor to the City) I didn't even know that Oxford had a castle so went along with wife and kids to see what it was all about.
Not disappointed, the "castle" part was just a Tower but gave an interesting insight as to some of the City's history with the tour of the cells (including the various historical attitudes to crime and punishment) fascinating.
It was school holidays so there was the obligatory treasure hunt with sweetie at the end for the kids (not a criticicism, my kids love them) so all in all a good effort and I think that I left enriched for the experience (even if I was the mug who stood closest to the pillory when the guide decided to provide a practical demonstration).
