Attraction Information

At Colchester Castle Museum follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, Norman invaders, the Witchfinder General and the devastation of Queen Boudica!

In fact you can explore over 2000 years of some of the most important events in British history in this magnificent Castle! There is so much to discover for both the casual visitor and even more so for school agers doing extra credit reports. Someone's getting a gold star when they go back to school!

Your family can feel a part of history as you experience the rise and fall of this town's past through internationally significant stories and objects. Why was Colchester so rich during the Roman occupation and how did it come to such a destructive end? Come and find out!

Explore the fascinating galleries and touch real Roman pottery, feel the weight of Roman armour and wonderfully for the kids you can also try on medieval hats, shoes and costumes, plus enjoy brass rubbings, get trendy in a toga and much more: so don't forget to bring your camera!
