Pocket Guide: Colchester

Colchester in Essex is the oldest recorded town in the United Kingdom, with a history that dates back over 2,000 years. Every year, couples and families follow in the footsteps of the Romans and make Colchester their base for exploring Essex. Here you'll find a range of accommodation to choose from with independent hotels and chain hotels alongside spa hotels and country club hotels with their own golf courses.

Hotels to Suit All Budgets in Colchester

Colchester has hotels to suit all budgets, whether you're looking for a value-for-money inn on the High Street or prefer a country club hotel or spa hotel offering luxurious accommodation. Town centre chain and independent hotels provide ideal family accommodation, with amenities such as laundry services, free WiFi and parking for guests. Head a little further out of town and you'll find golf resort hotels and spa hotels with full-service spas and leisure facilities, perfect for a romantic break for two, or for those travelling on business.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors or Soak Up Some History in Colchester

Colchester has a genuinely rich history - so why not uncover it for yourself with a visit to the Roman Theatre remains on Maidenburgh Street? It's just a short walk from most town centre hotels to Colchester Castle and Museum, home to some of the most significant Roman artefacts in the UK. Here you'll find a range of interactive exhibits and family events including guided tours of the castle roof and the (decidedly creepy!) Roman vaults.

On sunny days, pack a picnic lunch and head for Fingringhoe Wick nature reserve or High Woods Country Park, with its walking trails. The Painter's Trail cycle route is a popular choice for families, cycling through scenery made famous by some of the county's best artists.

Whether you're visiting Colchester for an action-packed family break, to relax and unwind or on a romantic weekend for two, the hotels here offer amenities to suit. Free WiFi ensures it's easy to stay connected with friends and family back home, whilst most hotels have flat-screen digital TVs in guest bedrooms, so you can catch up with the news in the morning or relax in front of a film after a day exploring the town.
