The Normans built the castle in the 11th century, but the gruesome history predates this, as it was actually built on the foundations of the Roman Temple which was attacked and destroyed in AD61 (and later rebuilt)

The castle was used as a prison for many centuries, with the earliest date of it being used as the towns gaol being 1226. It housed thousands of criminals and prisoners of war for crimes such as murder, piracy, treason, and witchcraft..

Also associated with the castle, was Matthew Hopkins, the Witchfinder general. He used the castle as a base to interrogate women suspected of witchcraft. Nineteen of the thirty two women interrogated at the castle were actually sentenced to death by hanging, during 1945

In 1648 Colchester was laid siege to by a parliamentary army during the second English civil war.

Colchester has seen so many historical events which have all contributed to it being an extremely haunted town, with the castle being right in the centre of it !

With 2000 years of gruesome history behind it, this is the place to spend the night and experience some paranormal activity.. there are a number of reported ghosts sightings over the centuries. Some human manifestations, and some animal.. the most famous and regularly reported ghost sighting is actually a cat.

Come and join us for an overnight ghost hunt..spend some time in the castle gaol, or if you’re feeling brave, underneath the castle in the terrifying vaults!
