Children are king at Colchester Castle
Children's imaginations run riot at Colchester Castle, which has the largest Norman Keep in Europe. Colchester was the first Roman stronghold in Britain, so the castle's museum contains some of the UK's most precious Roman finds. Children can build a Norman archway, excavate a doctor's grave and steer a chariot around Colchester's Roman Circus.
Mersea Island Museum is a bright and interactive collection of exhibits about nearby Mersea's social and natural history. Children learn through play about archaeology and the fishing industry. With a fisherman's cottage to play in and special exhibitions as changeable as the sea herself, visiting this museum is always a thrill.
