Getting Around

For people who have not visited Colchester before, it may be helpful to know that Colchester is situated on a hill that runs from north to south, and from west to east across the city centre. This means that some of the routes within the centre are quite steep, including North Hill which runs south from Colchester's main train station, which is a mile from the city centre. Wheelchair users arriving by train are therefore advised to call a taxi to get to the city centre.

Some of the streets in the historic parts of the city can be rather narrow and cobbled which means that they can become quite congested. Please contact the Colchester Visitor Information Centre for more  information on planning your stay.
