Colchester Castle, Europe’s largest Norman Keep, will once again be throwing open its historic doors at night for you to enjoy the ultimate in sleepover experiences. If you’ve ever wondered what Colchester Castle is like after dark, now you can find out!
Suitable for the whole family (5+), at the Museum offers plenty of fun, laughter and memory-making experiences. Meet historical characters, enjoy a tour of the Castle (with some spooky tales thrown in, exploring parts of the Castle not usually open to the public), and take part in fun activities before settling down for the night with a hot chocolate treat. All you need do is bring your sleeping bag, along with family and friends, and get ready for the most amazing night in one of the country's most historic venues.
Councillor Pam Cox, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Heritage, said: “There is no doubt that at the Museum provides the ultimate sleepover experience. You can choose where you sleep – from the atmospheric Lucas Vault, historic prisons, calm chapel, or on the main galleries – you just need to ask yourself if you are brave enough to spend the night! The friendly team can’t wait to welcome you, so all you need to do is get your overnight bag ready and head to the Castle for an unforgettable evening and take your place in the Castle’s rich history!”
at the Castle returns on the 11 February 2023 and prices start at £35 per person. Head to the website for further information and floor plans. To book call 01206 282 939 and speak to one of the team.
