Discover Colchester's Roman roots from your holiday home
Colchester is the United Kingdom's oldest recorded town and dates back more than 2000 years. Today, your holiday home is situated in a fascinating and idyllic town whose ancient origins continue to enrich its bustling present. A favourite with families, the town is full of engaging attractions and idyllic green spaces.
Heritage for miles
Heaving with Roman and Medieval remains, Colchester has a number of historic sites where you feel as though you had been transported back through the centuries. Stand in the ruinous St. Botolph's Priory and contemplate its dissolution in the 16th century, or pass through St. John's Abbey Gate and Holy Trinity Church's Saxon doorway, into another time.
The town is home to two Roman theatres and at least eight temples. Archaeologists have also unearthed evidence of as many as forty potter kilns and houses with technically advanced under heating systems under their ornate mosaic floors. You can see all this and more at Colchester's Castle Museum.
Children are king at Colchester Castle
Children's imaginations run riot at Colchester Castle, which has the largest Norman Keep in Europe. Colchester was the first Roman stronghold in Britain, so the castle's museum contains some of the UK's most precious Roman finds. Children can build a Norman archway, excavate a doctor's grave and steer a chariot around Colchester's Roman Circus.
Mersea Island Museum is a bright and interactive collection of exhibits about nearby Mersea's social and natural history. Children learn through play about archaeology and the fishing industry. With a fisherman's cottage to play in and special exhibitions as changeable as the sea herself, visiting this museum is always a thrill.
