Oxford Castle Unlocked is nestled in the heart of Oxford city centre. Visitors can explore the historic buildings on a 50 minute guided tour and discover fascinating stories from a character tour guide including the story of an Empress’ escape, the location where the famous tales of King Arthur were penned, the preserved Georgian prison wing which housed a variety of intriguing and questionable characters, and the ancient man-made mound, offering breath-taking views over Oxford’s dreaming spires.
What is the blogging assignment?
Bloggers are invited to experience and review the Oxford Castle Unlocked tour and enjoy the summer holiday event, which will be centred around the King Arthur legends, including Knight School, arts and crafts, and a themed activity trail.
Blogger visits would ideally take place in the first two weeks of the summer holidays (22nd July – 6th August).
Event details below:
There is medieval fun at Oxford Castle Unlocked this summer, when the King Arthur legends will be brought to life with a series of activities for all the family. Throughout the school holidays, families will be challenged to a quest around the castle as they complete their guided tour, seeking clues to help them solve a ‘King of the Castle’ themed trail. Arts and crafts in the prison wing will then keep the children entertained as parents enjoy a chance to absorb the fascinating history contained in the exhibition area, with compelling stories of castle characters and events from its 1000 year timespan. Weekends from Saturday 22 July will see the castle yard commandeered by knights who will invite children to enrol in their Knight School and learn the techniques and tricks required to protect the castle from its foes! Two 30 minute sessions of Knight School will run on Saturdays and Sundays, at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Blogger visits are available any day of the week but please note that the Knight School activity is only available to experience on weekends.
