About

Welcome to Oxford Castle, Oxford's oldest new quarter! The site was once home to the Norman Oxford Castle, then the infamous Oxford Prison. Parts of these historic buildings remain, and have shaped the development of Oxford Castle as it stands today, including St George’s Tower. The secrets of the site’s history are unlocked in the exciting visitor attraction, Oxford Castle – Unlocked. The rest of the site is now home to an exciting hub of bars and restaurants.
