Oxford Castle Quarter

The Oxford Castle Quarter is only a short walk away from our venue at The Jam Factory. It is steeped in history, being the location of the Norman Oxford Castle, the ‘infamous’ Oxford Prison, St George’s Tower (which provides a great view of the city if you can manage the climb), and the Castle Mound.

These historical buildings are now accompanied by ‘an exciting hub’ of bars and restaurants, along with the O3 Gallery (no admission fee), and the ‘gorgeous’ Malmaison Boutique Hotel.
