Parking in Colchester
Colchester was the capital of the south eastern region of England when the Romans arrived in 43AD, and they chose to retain it as their first permanent colony in this country. It is a modern town today but is packed with interesting and often attractive historic remains, like the Roman city wall and the Norman keep. You’ll have no trouble parking, either, as Colchester NCP car parks are handy for visiting all the attractions here.
Points of interest
The town gate and massive wall that the Romans built here to fend off Boadicea after she ransacked the town can still be seen and are a popular attraction for visitors. The Dutch Quarter is characterised by steep, narrow streets and tall houses, and is where a group of Flemish weavers lived in the 16th century. You can pre-book an NCP car park in Colchester and see all these sights on foot, as it’s a quite compact town, and the car park is also convenient if you want to pick up some shopping.
