    Amazing views across the spires of Oxford from the top. Open daily.
  • Mehmet Taha M.
    As a taller boy, the stairs are too small and tiny to climb to top of the tower. But I can say that it has great view of central Oxford 😉

    Stairs to the top are awkward - mind your head. (And avoid altogether if you're generously-sized).

    The guided Oxford castle tour will include a similar birdview of the city on its tower.

    It's £2.30 to head to the top of the tower to get some great snaps of Oxford

    It is possible to climb to the top of the tower for a good view of the Oxford skyline.

    No building in central Oxford may be constructed higher than it. It still contains a ring of six bells, these chime the quarter hours.

    The Tower is all that remains of St Martin's Church (c.1122 and 1896) when the main part of the church was demolished to make more room for traffic in the area.

    옥스포드 관광 시작점. 여기를 기준으로 코스를 잡으면 편합니다.

    Вид на город не впечатляет. Площадка церкви Св. Марии лучше. В 14.00 каждый день отсюда начинаются бесплатные пешие экскурсии. Можно дать на чай 5 фунтов конце экскурсии по желанию. Гид супер
