Overview

Today we visit Colchester, the oldest recorded town in Britain. It began life as the capital city of “Old King Cole” and in AD 49-50 Claudius built a great Roman city. Queen Boudica and the Iceni sacked it in AD60. The Normans gave it a great castle. Cromwell’s army besieged the town in 1648. The main streets still follow the Roman plan and parts of the Roman Walls remain. The Norman Castle Keep is the largest in Britain and is open to visitors.  Colchester is a fascinating place to visit, with shops, museums and art galleries, and beautiful parks and gardens.
