Oxford Castle and Prison and the Views from the Castle Tower

1.The Mound-This is the actual castle the tour guide told us.


2.The Old Prison entrance-The prison closed in 1996 after nearly 800 years .


and again...


3.The Prison-Some of the old prison now house bars and resturant and one of the prison wings is now a hotel.



4.The Castle Tower-We went up this tower and gave us some great views.


5.The views from the tower
a.Looking out of the city into the countryside


b.looking into the city(you can see why the city is called the Gleaming Spires)


c.Looking over toward Christchurch Collage.


d.Looking into the city toward Bonne Square and the Westgate Centre.


e.Looking toward Park End St

Oxford is known as the "dreaming spires" NOT the "gleaming spires!!" and it is the "Radcliffe Camera" and not the "John Radcliffe Camera"

Apart from that some very enjoyable pictures. Brings back memories of student days.......

It's very green and historical. I imagined something more diverse because of the university and the foreign students. It seems nice anyway!
