Keep the Bank Holiday chill at bay with Oxford Castle Quarter

Bank Holiday Afternoon Tea

This May Bank Holiday weekend is set to be the coldest for over 40 years! So while the BBQ may not get fired up, head over to Oxford Castle Quarter and let the walls of the City’s most historic site shelter you from the chill! Grab a bite in one of the onsite restaurants, from family favourites Pizza Express and Prezzo, to the traditional pub offering in the Swan & Castle. Or for a real treat why not indulge in an afternoon tea as both the Slug & Lettuce and the Malmaison Hotel’s Chez Mal Brasserie offer delicious afternoon tea packages with a twist!

Finally, if you haven’t already scaled the Saxon St George’s Tower at Oxford Castle & Prison, take the opportunity this weekend to explore the centuries old site. Costumed tour guides are on hand to transport you through the 1,000 year old Castle and former prison, which also features a ghostly crypt!
