Get to know - Colchester

By Lizzy Drewett - 27 April 2021

Move to Colchester

As the first capital of Roman Britain, Colchester is the oldest recorded town in the UK. 

Situated close to the coast in East Anglia, it is on the border with Suffolk and around 50 miles North-East of London. Colchester also offers great links into London with the train time into London Liverpool Street just 1 hour 17minutes. 

What can I buy?

With a population of over 121,000, Colchester is a sought after place to live and work. With an average house price of £283,452 in the last year, the majority of sales in Colchester during the last year were semi-detached properties, selling for an average price of £286,407. Terraced properties sold for an average of £247,850, with detached properties fetching £404,705.*

Things to do

Colchester not only offers a fantastic, bustling high street with the likes of Fenwick, Marks & Spencer, Primark, Fat Face and more, there is also a multitude of independent bars and restaurants, meaning residents have everything they need right on their doorstep! 

One of Colchester's most popular assets is Colchester Zoo. Following a tough time having to close during multiple lockdowns over the past year, the zoo has now reopened. 

Castle Park also makes a great day out with festivals, shows and concerts taking place throughout the year. 

Get connected

Colchester has two railway stations, Colchester and Colchester Town at different ends of the town. With London in a commutable distance as well as Chelmsford city just 34 minutes away in the car, you'll be well connected in Colchester!
