Colchester is a beautiful, old Roman town in Essex and a great base for those wanting to visit London and the nearby countryside. Opting to rent a car for your trip will allow you to get out and about with ease.

Colchester is a town full of character and has a wealth of history. It is thought to be Britain's oldest recorded town and attracts 4.5 million visitors every year...

And for good reason! The town has plenty to offer visitors. Attractions include Colchester Zoo with more than 270 species to admire; Colchester Castle, with the largest Norman keep in Britain which re-opened in the spring of 2014; the Natural History Museum; and the Hollytrees Museum, which is located in an 18th century house and exhibits three centuries worth of history.  

Colchester is also great for shopping - the Clacton Factory Outlet, Lion Walk Shopping Centre and Colchester market will certainly help those in need of some retail therapy. 

After a long day of shopping, head to the town's restaurants and treat yourself. There's a wide range of cuisines, as well as traditional pub food to take your fancy.

If you rent a car, you can pick your vehicle up from many downtown locations. Find the best car hire deal by using our search gadget at the top of the page.
