Chris Abbott, General Manager of Oxford Castle & Prison said: “We are delighted to offer this fantastic discount to local residents. We ran a similar scheme for the first time last January and saw hundreds of local people take advantage of the special offer.
“Oxford Castle has played such an important role in the development of our great city and we love to share its stories with our local community We hope to see even more local residents at the castle this January.”
Oxford Castle & Prison is located on the former site of Her Majesty’s Prison Oxford but has stood as a Castle for 1000 years. Their 40 minute tours explain the origins of Oxford and the role the Castle played in the city’s rich history. Visitors explore the Saxon stone-built St. George’s Tower, the atmospheric crypt, the preserved prison wing and the ancient man-made mound offering breath-taking views of Oxford. The quality of the attraction’s guided tours was recently recognised at the Beautiful South Awards.
To claim the discount, residents must present a valid proof of address (such as a driving licence or a utility bill) at the Castle’s ticket desk. Discounted tickets cannot be purchased online. Discounts apply to standard tickets only and are not valid in conjunction with any other offer. The offer runs from January 1 to 31 2019, subject to availability.
