Local area

Colchester is fast growing in popularity amongst British homeowners. And it's easy to see why! Colchester offers homeowners and visitors a variety of things to see and do. It was once the capital of Roman Britain and still has many remnants of its history today. You can walk around what's left of the Roman Walls and the Balkerne Gate, or visit the Gosbecks Archaeological Park where you can see a preserved Roman theatre and Romano-British temple.

Measuring 1.5 times the size of the Tower of London's White Tower, Colchester Castle's keep is the largest surviving example in Europe. You can visit the museum inside which details the local history. Other museums include the Boxted Airfield Museum, Hollytrees Museum, Natural History Museum, the Munnings Art Museum and Wilkin and Sons, which is also a tearoom and gift shop.

There are plenty of green parks and gardens in Colchester, perfect for a leisurely stroll. The Victorian Castle Park is an award-winning park and home to many events, shows and festivals. Just on the edge of town is High Woods Country Park, which was once a Royal Hunting forest and has several trails suitable for all different levels.

Colchester is also a great starting point for exploring the surrounding areas. The seaside town of Wivenhoe follows the River Colne and is just 20 minutes away by car. The beautiful countryside of Dedham Vale and Stour Valley are north of the town centre and have been awarded as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
