Attraction Information

Bill Spectre's 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 Bill Spectre (distinctively dressed as a Victorian undertaker) outside the glass fronted gift shop of Oxford Castle Unlocked.

The tour lasts approximately 1 hour 45 from the castle or 1 hour 15 from the Tourist Information Centre if you want a shorter version, and ends near the Sheldonian Theatre.

Suitable for wheelchair and pushchair users.
