About Colchester 

Colchester is a market town in the northeast of the county of Essex. At one time, Roman Britain's capital, even mentioned by the Roman historian Tacitus, the city has an impressive history. Known at that time as Camulodunum, it was destroyed by the rebellious Iceni Queen Boudica in AD 61. 

But it's not all about history. Contemporary Colchester has an abundance of attractions to entice any would-be visitor. Colchester Castle, Colchester zoo among them, there are also plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and shops to visit.

Colchester also has its fair share of culture on offer. Local museums and theatres have a host of informative and entertaining material to keep you busy. 

On the border of Essex and East Anglia, Colchester has numerous post-card villages on its doorstep ripe for exploration. Mere minutes from the east coast, Colchester is the ideal place to spend a quiet weekend away.
