THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Colchester

Colchester provides fascinating cultural, educational and leisure opportunities for all. The town centre is just 1.8 miles from the development and offers an abundance of restaurants and cafes, great shopping spots, several banks, and a variety of museums and galleries. The River Colne also runs through Colchester, along which you can enjoy beautiful, revitalizing walks. Visit Colchester Castle and you'll be led through 2000 years of some of the most important events in British history. The castle is home to some of Britain's most important historical finds, including some of the finest examples of Roman ceramic art and jewellery - the Colchester Vase and the Fenwick Treasure are two particular highlights.

At the Natural History Museum, all the family can gain fascinating insights into wildlife habitats, biodiversity and climate change, with collections focusing on north-east Essex in particular. Find out about the creatures that used to roam locally, including mammoths and even hippos. Colchester Zoo is another great place to take the family. Set in 60 acres of parkland and lakes, it is home to over 260 species, from elephants and giraffes - which you can hand-feed at daily public feeding sessions - to sea lions that will swim overhead as you walk through the 24-m tunnel. What's more, you'll come away from the zoo knowing you've made a difference, with all visits helping to fund the zoo's charity, Action for the Wild, which assists conservation projects worldwide.

For keeping active and enjoying the great outdoors, Colchester Golf Club is just over 2 miles away. An 18-hole course beautifully designed by five-time Open Champion James Braid, it is a non-profit member's club. Colchester Indoor Bowls Club is also just half a mile from the development. Open all year round, it caters for all ages and always welcomes new members.
