About this Event

11am – 4.30pm

Part the mists of time and head to Colchester Castle’s Discovery of Dragons Day. Come face to face with not one, but four spellbinding dragons who will be waiting to greet visitors. Meet the epic Epico, elegant green Braccus, Ildri, the sleepy one of the family and cute baby Nuri, everyone’s favourite! With colourful scaly legs, plumes of smoke and friendly eyes, there is no need to fear the Castle’s new friends.

Throughout the day you can also take part in additional interactive activities that include making your very own Coronation Crown, a majestic Kings and Queens quest around the Castle, and of course all the Castle’s treasures and displays.

Finally make sure you bring your pocket money as there will be plenty of treats in our pop-up Dragon shop to remind you of your special day.

The Coronation Crown activity is suitable for ages 5+, but all the other elements offer fun for all ages.
