Colchester Castle

Colchester, Essex

Colchester Castle is undeniably one of the most important historic buildings in the country. The Norman Castle was built on the ruins of the Roman Temple of Claudius and since the 16th century, has been a ruin, a library and a gaol for witches. Today it is an award winning museum featuring many hands-on displays showing Colchester's history from the Stone Age to the Civil War. Children can take part in activities such as trying on a toga, feeling the weight of Roman armour and touching real Roman pottery. During school holidays there are lots of activities for children of all ages. Contact the castle for details. There is no café but plenty of space for picnicking so bring supplies. There is no car park at the castle, parking is available in the towns car parks. The castle is just off the high street. Open Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm.

We strongly recommend you ring Colchester Castle before you set off on your family day out, to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices. It may also be worth visiting the website for Colchester Castle, www.colchestermuseums.org.uk/castle, to see if there are any special events on the day for which you may have to book a ticket. Please also be aware that if Colchester Castle hosts birthday parties, this may limit the access in the cafe/restaurant areas.
