Oxfordski zamak (engleski: Oxford Castle) je veliki, djelomično razrušeni normanski zamak smješten na zapadnom rubu grada Oxford u Engleskoj. Prvi put je podignut u 11. vijeku kao tipični zamak okružen šancem ispunjenim vodom i na umjetnom brdu. Kasnije je dograđivan, te je igrao važnu ulogu u građanskom ratu u 12. vijeku, te nešto manju u baronskom ratu početkom 13. vijeka. Već u 14. vijeku je, međutim, izgubio dosta od svoje vojne vrijednosti te je uglavnom služio kao sjedište uprave u grofoviji te za držanje zatvorenika. Najveći dio zamka je uništen u građanskom ratu sredinom 17. vijeka; preostale zgrade su nastavile služiti kao lokalni zatvor. Godine 1785. je oko zamka sagrađen zatvorski kompleks koji je 1876. postao jedna od nacionalnih kaznionica poznata kao HM Prison Oxford. Zatvor je godine 1996. prestao s radom, ali je dograđen i konvertiran u hotel. Srednjovjekovni ostaci zamka - brdo i toranj St George's Tower - se danas čuvaju kao spomenici kulture.

Get a guided tour (particularly with the guy in the red costume). The stories make this visit worth it.
