Entry prices at Colchester Castle will be lower from today until the end of August as part of a celebration of summer.
The heritage attraction, which underwent a £4.3million revamp last year, hopes to attract even more families at the tail-end of the school summer holiday with the price drop.
An adult ticket at the Colchester Borough Council-owned attraction, will be reduced from £7.60 to £6, while a child and reduced rate admission will be £3.50 instead of the usual £4.75.
The cheaper tickets are available from 10am today until 5pm on August 31.
Tim Young, Colchester borough councillor for culture, said: “It’s the final few weeks of the school holidays and we want to give as many people as much chance as possible to come and visit our iconic castle.

“We understand keeping young family members occupied throughout the break on a budget can be tricky – reducing our admission fees will give parents and carers a helping hand.
“The revamp last year has created so many exciting things to see and do for all the family at the castle. I would recommend a visit to both residents and visitors alike.”
