About Adopt a Dragon!

Would you have a dragon as a friend?

Join Oxford Castle & Prison this Easter and start your morning with three interactive activities!

Paint and decorate your dragon egg, construct your own lair for your dragon with treasure to guard, and then finally, it’s time for you to adopt your very own dragon to take home with you.

Each child will take home their egg, lair and soft toy dragon along with a certificate of adoption and a fact sheet for them to fill in for their fiery friend.

This activity is perfect for children who love to be creative with arts and crafts – and who love dragons too.


Please note: Capacity for Adopt a Dragon is limited to 15 children per session.
