Colchester Castle Opening – 2nd May

KidAround Magazine UK

Colchester Castle has got a real treat in store for visitors when they open their doors to the public on 2nd May. The Castle has been closed since March 2013 for redevelopment and has been worth the wait!

I was lucky enough to be invited to their pre-opening to have a look at the new and wonderful work that has been done. The castle is warm, bright and welcoming with lots of interaction for all.

They have a new amazing projector screen (son et lumiere) that covers the castle wall to reveal stories and information in colourful animation, it’s the first of its kind in the region. There is plenty of hands on fun too, visitors can excavate a doctor’s grave, ride a chariot around the Roman Circus or play in the Roman villa.
