Pocket Guide: Colchester Colchester Castle Museum Hotels

Colchester Castle is a Grade I listed building located in Colchester, Essex. William the Conqueror himself ordered the construction of the castle, although it wasn't completed until long after his death, around the beginning of the 12th Century. The castle's keep earns the title of the largest Norman structure in Europe, beating even the Tower of London's White Tower. Just like the Tower of London, Colchester Castle has enjoyed a long, tumultuous and fascinating history - besieged by King John in the 13th century and the headquarters of infamous Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins in 1645.

A Fascinating Family Day Out from Essex Hotels

The castle was privately owned until 1922, and it is today open to visitors as an award-winning and hugely popular Essex tourist attraction. Colchester Castle is a public museum, with interactive displays, activities, regular family events and tours. Exhibits cover the long history of the museum right back to Roman times (when there was a temple dedicated to Emperor Claudius on the site); why not try your hand at steering a chariot or excavating an ancient Roman Grave! If you're staying in hotels in Essex or Colchester, Colchester Castle Museum is a must see historic landmark with lots to discover for the whole family.

Easily Reached from Hotels in Colchester

Colchester Castle Museum is located in the heart of Colchester, right by the High Street. There are a couple of train stations nearby, including Colchester Town Railway Station, which is just a few minutes' walk from the castle. Colchester boasts some of the finest guesthouses and hotels in Essex, including The Best Western Marks Tay Hotel, The White Hart Hotel, and Dragonfly Hotel Colchester - all well placed a short walk from the castle.

As the largest settlement in Essex, there's plenty to keep you and the family busy in Colchester once you're done stepping back in time at Colchester Castle. Colchester was once the capital of Roman Britain and is a treasure-trove of amazing archaeological sites, including a recently discovered Roman chariot race track. As a large and lively town, you'll find all manner of shops, eateries and conveniences dotted around the place, particularly along the High Street.
