Colchester Castle


A replica of the Roman temple that the castle was built on.

The Castle has just undergone a £4.2 million refurbishment and is looking better than ever with brand new interactive displays, new finds and star exhibits. There are plenty of experiences for children – from dressing up to building a Roman archway and exploring a recreated thatched roundhouse. This makes for a fantastic family outing for all ages; everyone is sure to enjoy the new app that brings the castle to life.

The castle is in the center of Castle Park which has two large play parks for children. There is also the nearby Hollytrees museum to visit – free of charge.
