Colchester Castle Coronation celebrations!

PUBLISHED: 3 May 2023

Get 25% off Castle entry and Castle Passes on the 6 May

Colchester Castle is thrilled to announce that visitors to the Castle on the 6 May will receive a 25% discount off all admission prices and Castle passes to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. The discount will be automatically applied at the admission desk upon arrival.

During your visit, look out for regally dressed characters wandering around the galleries ready to greet you and teach you all about royal history and the kings and queens of the past. You'll also learn more about Colchester’s very own Warrior Queen, Boudica, who famously led the Iceni attack on the Romans.

Once you’ve soaked up all the history, enjoyed the displays and nationally important treasures, younger guests can take some time out and get creative by designing their very own Crown with a free craft session to take home.

Councillor Pam Cox, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Heritage, said: “The team at the Castle are looking forward to greeting visitors on this very special day. Just a few short weeks ago His Majesty and the Queen Consort visited Colchester Castle, and we cannot wait to join in with the Coronation celebrations.”
