About

Colchester: More than Britain’s Oldest Recorded Town. Why should you put Colchester on your itinerary?

If you believe variety is the spice of life - Colchester is the place for you. Only in Colchester will you find 2,000 years of history thriving alongside 21st C. culture, providing everything you need for a day trip or short break.

We have art - from cutting-edge, contemporary galleries to traditional favourites like Constable and Munnings, whilst shopoholics can find therapy in small specialist shops and familiar big name stores. For a gastronomic experience, Colchester has cuisine to suit all tastes, occasions and pockets.

As Britain’s oldest recorded town, our historical treasures are the envy of many destinations,
and can be found in streets and alleyways as well as in award-winning museums. Spend your days at a wealth of attractions on land, in water, indoors and out, and spend your evenings discovering our clubs, theatres and
open-air vibes. Relax in our lush green landscapes in the Victorian Castle Park, or take in sweeping views of nearby coast and countryside.

After a long day enjoying all Colchester can offer, you’ll need somewhere friendly and comfortable to stay. Our selection of group friendly accommodation has all been quality assured - choose between staying in the heart of town, or in a more rural setting.

Exploring is easy, ideally located on the doorstep to East Anglia, and only 50 minutes
from London - Colchester is the place to spice up your life! To find out more, check out the newly revamped www.colchesterforgroups.co.uk website.
