A graphic of the Castle with two pumpkins in teh foreground


Regularly throughout the day on Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th October.

Join us for a special half term treat and travel back over 2000 years on a trip into the hidden spaces of Colchester Castle on a specially adapted tour, just for kids. Descend into the Roman Vaults underneath the Castle and climb the biggest Norman spiral staircase in England. Hear tales of victory, defeat and the hard-fought battles that have made Colchester the town it is today, with a little Halloween magic thrown in. At the end why not treat yourself to something to remember the day in our gift shop?

Ask at the front desk when you arrive for start times during your visit.
