Take a walk through Colchester Town Centre and discover the Roman history that can be found right under your feet! From temples to theatres, chariot racing tracks to everyday houses - Colchester had it all. Follow the trail to discover some of the ancient sites, and to discover fascinating facts about Roman Colchester.
Once you've completed a trail either draw us a picture of Roman Colchester or tell us your own fascinating fact and you'll get a small prize in return.
The Roman Trivia Trail is designed especially for children and families, but it's also a great simple guide for adults wanting a whistlestop tour through the historic sites. If you want something a bit more in depth, why not try our Guide to Colchester's Roman Walls?
You can download the Roman Trivia Trail to print at home, or pick one up from the Visitor Information Centre. If you're printing at home you may want to think about completeing the trail backwards so you end up at the Visitor Information Centre to collect your prize*.
*If you're picking up a trail from the VIC we are happy to give you a prize in advance to save you walking all the way back!
