The Charles Grey Room

The Charles Grey Room

Situated on the first floor of Colchester Castle…

…the Charles Grey Room is a private function room housing a beautiful ornate wooden mantelpiece which dates back to the 1600s adorning the back feature wall.

During Museum opening hours, three large doors remain closed to give you the privacy you may wish depending on the nature of your event. Alternatively they can be opened after 5pm to offer a vista over the museum galleries and add a real wow factor to your function.

So whether you are looking for the perfect setting for a seminar, lecture, workshop, or even a special celebration, Colchester Castle, a wonderful and unique venue, surrounded by thousands of years’ worth of history, is the perfect choice.
