  • Enjoyed a lunch here. Good sized portions and incredible cake to finish with! It's worth a wander around the farm too. Cows, sheep, goats, llamas, pigs and ducks to look at.  more »

  • I have visited Marks Hall Arboretum for a few years now and have always had a pleasant time. There is plenty of parking available but even when there are many cars on site, you do not see many people actually in the Arboretum while walking as it is so large. There is a small cafe there with inside and outside seating available and of course toilets. At a steady walking pace you could get around within 90 minutes. There are however plenty of benches dotted around where you can sit down and take in the views. I would recommend it for a visit.
  • Great garden on old airbase. Big and a long walk. Tearoom good
  • A very nice place. Friendly staff. There are gardens and lakes and woods. Beware dogs are not allowed in the arberitum area but there are many other places they can go. Nice looking tea room but it closes at 3.30 in winter as the staff finish at 4.00. Family ticket £13. Would go again.
  • Great for walking and spending time outdoors in some beautiful areas. Good café.
  • Went for a wedding - absolutely beautiful setting

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.
