The Snow Lion and Snow Queen stand in front of the Castle


Sessions running from 11am – 1pm, 1 – 3pm and 3 – 5pm

Christmas is coming and the team at the Castle are getting in the festive spirit! The winter months are a fantastic time to pay a visit to Colchester Castle and this year join us for one of our Enchanted Christmas experiences. In this two-hour session you will get the opportunity to meet our magical and majestic Snow Lion and his Snow Queen, take part in some fun Castle craft activities, discover the Castle displays and interactive exhibits, and enjoy the Castle’s new exhibition, Decoding The Roman Dead.  

When you are all tired out, revive yourself with a festive mulled wine or hot chocolate and munch on a yummy mince pie!

This event is suitable for all ages.
