OXFORD CASTLE AND PRISON - Oxford (22 miles) Oxford Castle is a large, partly ruined Norman medieval castle. You can take a guided tour around it including climbing the tower for amazing views over Oxford. Afterwards kids can try out some ‘hard labour’ devices to get an idea of prison life. There is also a café onsite.

When William the Conqueror invaded England and won the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Oxford Castle was marked by the Normans as the ideal place for a motte-and-bailey castle. Norman baron Robert O’Doyly took it upon himself to build this castle. Over time, our site transformed from a castle into a prison.
