As the evenings begin to draw in and winter approaches, plan an evening out at Colchester Castle.

Colchester Castle is thrilled to be offering private after-hours guided tours, all designed around individual group needs. Simply tell the team what you want to see and hear about, and our expert staff will devise the perfect tour of the Castle just for you.

Fancy descending into the Roman vaults, climbing the biggest Norman spiral staircase in England and hearing tales of victory, defeat and hard-fought battles that have made Colchester the town it is? Then, you can!

Why not try a ‘History Stinks’ tour (popular with our younger visitors), where you can really smell the highs and lows of the Castle’s historic past? With all tours suitable for big kids to little knights, they offer a unique visitor experience. Book today, by calling 01206 282939. Tours cost just £60 for a family ‘bubble’ of six and fully comply with Government Covid-19 guidelines.

Alternatively, if your family bubble of six are master codebreakers, why not book one of the Castle’s sell-out Escape Experiences. Escape at the Castle calls for quick-witted individuals, who are good at unravelling clues and cracking codes. Explore the mysterious goings-on that have caused several members of the Castle team to go missing. Can YOU break the Serpents Curse?

Book your visit today by calling 01206 282939. Suitable for 11+ plus. Escape at the Castle costs just £60 for a family ‘bubble’ of six and is fully compliant with Government Covid-19 guidelines.

Councillor Julie Young, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Performance and Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “Fun, private experiences at Colchester Castle cost less than you think. With bookable events suitable for big kids to little knights, the Castle tours and escape experiences offer not only great value for money, but plenty of historical fun! Support your local heritage and come to the Castle this winter.”
