Colchester

What do the residents say?

‘Colchester has so much to offer. There are excellent nurseries, primary and secondary schools which is why we originally moved to the area but also the town centre is great.  It has great shopping and so many good restaurants: some of the chains but also some great independent ones. I really recommend Pavillion and Mimosa.’

‘Colchester is paved in history and has so much to offer young families. Our children love visiting Colchester Castle and Colchester Zoo is probably the best in the country.’

‘I’ve grown up in the area, moved away but then came back. I love it here. Everything is on our doorstep; we can be in London in less than an hour, beautiful villages and countryside within 10 minutes, excellent local amenities and schools – I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else’.
