Colchester Castle - From Temple of Claudius, United Kingdom
Colchester Castle in England, United Kingdom is the most complete example of a Norman castle still standing in Britain today. Built shortly after the Norman conquest of England, Colchester Castle stands on the foundations of an old Roman temple. Visitors can enjoy its impressive structure, which includes a large Norman keep, a powerfully-built outer shell and a series of massive gates and towers. Inside the castle, visitors can explore the richly decorated Great Hall, the priory, prison and outer bailey. A richly detailed mural in the Great Hall tells the story of Colchester's Roman past and a museum attached to the castle outlines the history of the castle and the town. The castle is situated close to the heart of Colchester town centre and is a beautiful setting for holidays and festivals, or for simply relaxing and taking in the view.
