Food & Drink
Colchester's food scene will literally make your mouth water. With an eclectic mix of tastes from all over the world served with a cosmopolitan ambience, there's sure to be something to suit all tastes and pockets.
This area of the website will be under development over the coming months but the friendly team at the VisitColchester Information Centre can advise on family friendly or à la carte restaurants whether you fancy a meal in town or countryside.
If you are self catering why not treat yourself to local specialities from a real delicatessen?
Or if you are here for the day delicious sandwich shops and cafes are on hand for a quick stop while exploring Colchester's shopping.
Lining up to welcome you along narrow streets and bustling lanes are the temptingly distinctive specialist shops. Then around the corner you'll find all the big names.
And, if you're still hungry for more retail therapy, a visit to the award-winning Williams & Griffin department store will feed those pangs!
