Medieval Castle, erected because of the Norman Conquest of England, 1066. Built to dominate the town which had taken considerable damage during the Conquest. Replaced with the stone in the 11th century, it was thus an integral part of the conflict of the Anarchy.

During the 14th century, the castle lost its value as a military stronghold. It became a county administration and detained prisoners. A vast amount of the castle received damaged during the English Civil War.

In the 18th century, the castle was again used to detain prisoners. But this time prisoners were local, rather than from across the county. In 1785, a new prison complex appeared on the grounds of the castle, which expanded in 1876. It becomes HM Prison Oxford. The prison closed in 1996. Redeveloped as the hotel, Malmaison Oxford.

The most terrifying report comes from one of the security guards on his nightly patrol. Security has long been wary of the location and experienced several things. Such as sounds, bangs, and the usual phenomena.

But, one dark night, the guard had reached the end of his patrol when his dog stopped, shuffling back growling. In fact, it was that moment when two large shadow figures appeared. As anyone would do, he ran at pace in the opposite direction. Days after the experience, his dog died, frightened to death!
