Colchester Castle Park

Book Tickets Online


Welcome to the Castle Park and to a trail that leads you past some of our more interesting and notable trees. Trees, those large woody plants that we sometimes take for granted. We benefit from their welcome shade on a hot summer’s day, or stroll through the landscape happily accepting the beauty and diversity they bring to our surroundings. That is, until we notice an unusual leaf, strange fruits, colourful bark, or perhaps, surprising flowers that we’d not noticed before, and then we think: What is that tree? Perhaps this little guide will help. If this is your first visit to the park you will find helpful maps at the main entry gates.
