Colchester

Britain’s oldest town.

Medieval re-enactment in Colchester, Essex, England

COLCHESTER - AT A GLANCE

  • The centrepiece of this historic town is Colchester Castle – Europe’s largest Norman keep built on the foundations of a significant Roman temple, and now an exemplary museum.
     
  • The town’s friendly shopping streets are lined with Tudor-beamed buildings and elegant Victorian architecture, and the surrounding countryside has flower meadows and picture-postcard villages galore.
     
  • By train you can get to Colchester, north east of London, in less than 1 hour.
