Officially carrying the title of the oldest recorded town in Britain, Colchester welcomes millions of visitors every year to its enviable list of attractions all catered for by the humble Colchester B&B.
This unique location manages to seamlessly blend the contemporary with the traditional, and as such historical yet cosmopolitan Colchester represents an ideal destination for travellers of all ages, with Colchester B&B's to suit all budgets and tastes. Whether you want to take in the main sights in a day, or slow things down a bit and spend a week or two lazily watching the world go by and discovering the delights of the surrounding countryside, boredom in Colchester is not an option.
Boasting a rich and vibrant history, Colchester is filled with museums of all shapes and sizes - the Natural History Museum and Castle Museum perhaps the most important of all. Even without entering any of the buildings, the charmingly antiquated architecture of Colchester centre's main streets never fails to inspire. Among the historic architecture, you will also find a few period Colchester B&B's that ooze character. This old roman garrison town has three main towns nearby, namely Ipswich, Chelmsford and the pretty sea side town of Clacton-on-Sea.
Entire afternoons can be lost meandering aimlessly downside streets and discovering traditional, local shops offering rare and one-off items covering every imaginable niche. The high street is also bursting with brand names for those preferring their retail rooted in the 21st Century, with shopping visitors catered for by some select Colchester B&B's located within walking distance.
The dining scene perfectly reflects the incredible age and history of Colchester, offering an endless variety of options from the truly traditional to the outrageously upmarket. The quaint and gentile exterior of Colchester's historical buildings also impressively masks a throbbing nightlife scene for those looking for a more energetic end to the evening.

And of course, the nearby coastline offers an immeasurable number of watersports and pursuits, along with opportunities for pure, unbridled relaxation...and some of the best fish 'n' chips in the UK!
