Colchester Camping and Touring Van sites

Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Colchester.





Founded some 3,000 years ago and once ruled by Old King Cole – officially known as King Cunobelin of the Catevellauni tribe – Colchester is England’s oldest recorded town and one of its most interesting.

The Romans created the first major settlement here but it was sacked in 55 AD by Queen Boudicca. In the 11th century, the Normans built a defensive castle whose magnificent keep still stands as a testament to their workmanship. For a time it was used as a jail for witches.

During the Civil War Colchester witnessed the execution of leading royalists following a siege in which the townsfolk had little choice but to eat anything they could lay their hands on.

When Colchester's fortunes changed it became an important centre in the cloth-making industry thanks to an influx of Flemish weavers. Today it is a place of enthralling museums, Roman antiquities and eye-catching bygones. Even the old Roman walls can still be seen, as can the evocative ruins of St Biotopes Priory - one of England's first Augustinian priories - and the 16th century Bourne watermill.

The town is home to the East Anglian Railway Museum, which has a monumental collection of period railway paraphernalia – everything from locomotives to rolling stock and signals. Tympersleys Clock Museum is a unique attraction dating back to the 15th century. It contains part of one of the largest collections of clocks in Britain. Colchester Zoo boasts one of the best big cat and primate collections in Europe.
