A visit to Colchester Castle is better than ever before with interactive displays and star exhibits, like the Colchester Gladiator Vase and Fenwick Hoard of Roman treasure.

Have a go at building a Norman archway, dressing as an Iron Age Britain or steering a Roman chariot. Be wowed as a large scale projection transforms the east wall with light and sound.

Tours, led by expert guides, are offered daily and can take you down into the Roman vaults and up onto the Castle roof.
