Book NowIn 2007 Fright Nights brought to the world the first ever Oxford Castle ghost hunt, since then we have taken thousands of ghost hunters to its haunted crypts and cells. With a huge amount of frightening ghost encounters and a chilling history – are you the next to venture within its walls at night?

This is your chance to experience the austere confines of the 18th-century Debtors Tower and Prison D-wing and the dark atmosphere of the 900 year old underground Crypt; marvel at the Mound of the 11th-century motte and bailey castle with vaulted well chamber and climb the Saxon St George’s Tower!

Attendees will also discover the truth behind the Oxford Castle curse (the Black Assize of 1577) when several hundred people died within the space of five weeks and of the terrible conditions endured by the prisoners and of great escapes!

There have been many reports of paranormal activity at the Oxford Castle site including:

The Murderer Mary Blandy was tried and hanged at Oxford in 1752, her ghost has been see a number of times walking the Castle Mound In the 1970s a group of inmates held a seance in one of the cells sparking poltergeist activity, in the end a priest was called to conduct an exorcism.

A strange white mist has been witnessed rising up a flight of stairs, two prison guards watched in horror as it faded in front of their eyes. In the past the Castle has been used as a film set including for the film “The Italian Job”.
More recently during filming, a group of film extras heard unidentifiable shouts and screams echoing around the main buildings. On at least two occasions there has been unexplained physical damage to various items stored at the prison.
Security guards have long been uneasy doing the rounds at night and the most terrifying apparition was spotted by one guard and his dog on a nightly patrol. The dog stopped and growled while its master saw two black figures in front of him, days later the dog died of fright!

I attended your event and had a fantastic night! I appreciate all the organisation you took for the night and experienced some ghostly phenomena. All in all it was a night packed with action, some of which I kept to myself only to be confirmed by the medium and other guests later on. Thank you for a life changing experience, hope to see you on another event soon. J Ibbertson
