1. Bottle Feeding the Lambs, Layer Marney Tower.

Until April 18. 11am to 4pm, various days. 01206 330784.

It’s an annual treat which is as exciting, for some, as climbing the largest Tudor Gatehouse in the country. Bottle feeding the spring lambs is for families both young and old. The lambs are always adorable, if rather greedy. Feeding times are at 12.30pm and 4pm.

Calling all brave adventurers, a dragon has been spotted at Colchester Castle, but are you brave enough to come and meet them?
