  • Awesome ruin! Great place just to walk through on your way somewhere else. It's was foggy when we went which gave it a spooky feel.
  • Hidden Colchester history next to town centre, worth a visit, great for photography students and plenty of information boards around tell the story of these ruins. Worth a visit.
  • A peaceful, dreamy and relaxing place to escape the noise of traffic.
  • Historic ruins in the centre of Colchester near two of the town centre car parks. Interesting and worth a visit on your way through - not enough there to plan a day around though.
