About this Event

Join us at Colchester’s Castle for one of two private, bookable experiences!

Slots available at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm


Bespoke Gallery Tours

Be guided around the displays as you hear the fascinating history of Colchester and the remarkable story of what has happened beneath your very feet. From family friendly tours to secrets of the collections with a curator, just let us know what you’d like to see when you book and we’ll match a member of our team to your visit. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer tours into the Roman vaults due to social distancing guidelines.

Tours last 45 minutes. Bookings can only be made by a ‘bubble’ or family group from the same household, and are limited to up 6 people. 


Escape Experience

Set in Europe’s largest Norman keep, come and explore the mysterious goings on that have caused several members of staff to go missing. Why not bring your family or friends along to solve the puzzles and crack the clues to break THE SERPENTS CURSE. For anyone who has completed the experience before, we have had to make a few changes to keep players safe.

The escape experience lasts 45 minutes. It is suitable for up to 6 players aged 10+ and may only be booked by a ‘bubble’ or family group from the same household.


Please note, we have worked hard to make the tour and escape experience safe for everyone. We are unable to offer PPE and visitors are welcome to bring their own, but it is not a requirement and wearing it should not hinder participation. 


£60 per session
