    Castle Park is a large park located at the bottom of the main town centre. It has plenty of entrances/exits and each one is plenty wide enough to deal with heavy traffic. There is a large pond in the ...  more »

  • One of the most interesting place to visit in Colchester. If you're a fan of history, you will be amazed by the story of this castle. I recommend you all to visit the museum which has been renovated. Their staffs are friendly. The park is clean and if you visit this place during spring, you will see a lot of flowers all around. A really nice place to bring your family and have a picnic. It's very near to restaurants and town centre.
  • Great Park always some event occurring. Very well kept, small cafe and pedalos and public toilets. Castle costs money to get into.
  • Nice place for a gentle stroll around. Some peaceful areas. Take the family and play safely. A nice cafe keeps you going when the energy drops.
  • A wonderful town centre park, an escape from the noise and crowds with plenty room to sit in the sun or shade and enjoy some time out. Friendly squirrels are plentiful too.
  • Love the park. The lower park is doggie friendly but you can't take dogs to the upper park where the castle is. Beautiful ponds, lots of swans and ducks

Where to stay in Colchester

A short train ride from London, Colchester is a university and working town. Hotels in the town center are near the main attractions, but for less expensive lodging consider a room near the university campus, which is situated in a tree-filled parkland.
