Visit Colchester

Colchester in Essex is Britain's oldest recorded town, with a rich history dating back over 2000 years.

But it's not just history. Colchester today is a thriving, modern town with great visitor attractions, including the family favourites Colchester Zoo and Colchester Castle, as well as fantastic places to eat, drink and shop.

Poised at the gateway to East Anglia with picturesque villages and only minutes away from the coast, the Colchester area is the perfect destination for a well-deserved short break, day trip or family holiday.
