Dedham is a just a short drive from Colchester. The village roads are not meant for heavy traffic, so we recommend using public transport when possible, especially during the summer months.

• By Car: Dedham is just 20 minutes’ drive from Colchester town centre. Information on Dedham car parks is available on the Colchester Borough Council website.

• By Bus: The 80, 81, and 81A buses runs from Colchester to Dedham. The 93/94 bus also runs from Colchester to East Bergholt, which is a 30mn walk to Dedham.

• By Train: Regular trains run from Colchester Station (North Station) to Manningtree (England’s smallest town!). From here, Dedham is a 40mn walk away along a beautiful path following the River Stour. Alternatively taxis can take you the short 10mn drive to the centre of the village.

• By Bike: Cycling in Dedham Vale is ideal to explore the area at your own pace. You can cycle from Colchester to Dedham via Ardleigh Reservoir, a route which takes about an hour. You can also hire bikes once in Dedham.
