  • Amazing ruins with free entry. Not much interpretation. It seems some Roman stone was reused here.
  • This place would benefit from a bit more information, but none the less is definitely worth a visit. Even if you only spend two minutes it is a fascinating and beautiful ancient attraction just a few yards from the high street.
  • Amazing ruins of St Botolph's Priory. Shame about some of the drunken/high idiots who like to hang out here
  • 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.
