Oxford Ghost Trail

Historically informative yet hugely entertaining, it's the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere of this famous city, leaving you with a deliciously scary tingle running down your spine.

Intrepid ghost hunters should meet outside the glass fronted gift shop of Oxford Castle Unlocked. Bill Spectre (distinctively dressed as a Victorian undertaker) will depart from that place at 6.30pm every Friday and Saturday evening. For a shorter walk, meet outside the Tourist Information Centre, 15-16 Broad Street at 6:50pm.

Beware! The board outside the blue gates of Trinity College has nothing to do with Bill Spectre's Ghost Trail, he never leaves from there.

The tour lasts approximately 1 ¾ hours from the castle or 1 ¼ hours from the Tourist Information Centre, and ends near the Sheldonian Theatre.

Adults - £9.00
Children (aged 13-15 years) - £7.00
Children (aged 5-12 years) - £5.00
