Walking Tours - Book Now Graphic


Take a guided walking tour around Colchester to discover its history and heritage with an expert guide.

Colchester was Britain's first city, and is now it's newest after regaining city status in 2022. With a story stretching back over 2000 years, join one of our official city guides on a guided walk and explore the dramatic events that have shaped the city, from the destruction of Roman Camulodunum to the Civil War Siege of 1648 and beyond.

The Camulodunum to Colchester Tour runs weekly, and is led by our experienced and fully qualified city guides, meaning your tour is guaranteed to be well paced, entertaining, and factually accurate.

To book the December dates please phone or drop in to the VIC. Online booking for these dates will be available soon.

More Information.

Tours are suitable for all ages, however due to the historic nature of some of the sites patrons with access requirements are advised to contact the Visitor Information Centre in advance and the suitability of the tour can be advised, or appropriate adjustments made.

Tours start at the Visit Colchester Information Centre, located in Hollytrees Museum in Castle Park.

Restrictions on dog walkers in upper Castle Park mean the tours are not normally suitable for dogs, except assistance dogs.

For large groups, private tours are available which can be run on a theme of your choosing, and at a time convenient for you. Contact the Visitor Information Centre for more information.

Please note there is no tour on Saturday 9th September due to Heritage Open Weekend taking place. A free alternative will be in place instead.
