Coach Holidays to Colchester – Colchester is Britain’s oldest recorded town. Its history dates back over two thousand years and much of it is depicted in the town’s award-winning museums, which contain items of national historic importance.
Colchester’s setting, in the beautiful Essex countryside, provided the inspiration for some of the country’s most renowned artists, such as Constable and Gainsborough and the area offers cutting edge galleries and studios showcasing both contemporary and modern art and sculpture.
Today, Colchester is a vibrant, modern town with many visitor attractions, such as Beth Chatto Gardens, 16th Century Bourne Mill and Colchester Zoo.
We use the Marks Tey Hotel, which provides the perfect base for exploring the delights of Constable Country.
The town centre’s narrow streets and bustling lanes are lined with welcoming shops, friendly cafés and an eclectic mix of eating establishments, from world class gourmet restaurants to traditional pubs. Make time to visit the Charter Market on Fridays and Saturdays, which was established in the 12th century and is held in Culver Street West, Long Wyre Street and Culver Street East.
