The local area
The county town of Essex, Colchester is a charming and historic area that’s well within reach of the country’s capital. It lays claim to being Britain’s oldest recorded town, as well as being its first Roman-founded city, and this rich past is displayed clearly through landmarks such as the 11th-century Colchester Castle and the elegant town hall. Nevertheless, Colchester today is a thoroughly modern town, equipped with cool hangouts, exciting independent restaurants and attractions like a zoo and golf course.
Commuters will be delighted with direct rail services into London’s Liverpool Street Station, as well as to the coast and other Essex towns like Braintree and Sudbury. Drivers will find the A12 handy, which heads towards the capital via neighbouring Chelmsford, as well as the A120 which leads west to join the M11. The nearest airport to Colchester is London Stanstead Airport, just a 40-minute drive away.
Schools and higher education institutions are abundant in the town. Hamilton Primary and Kendall Primary are among the options for younger children, while Colchester Royal Grammar School and The Gilberd School are among OFSTED ‘outstanding’ secondary prospects.
