Parking and Travel
It's easy to reach Colchester by road and rail from within the UK and beyond. If you're driving, it'll be straightforward to park once you're in the town. Car parks are close to shopping centres, museums and other places of interest. Cycling routes are being developed round the town, too. Colchester has several beautiful public parks and walks and the idyllic surrounding countryside is world-famous. As well as discovering local walks for yourself, walking in a group is a great way to stay motivated to exercise throughout the year. Check out the pages below for walking in a group, buggy-friendly walks and a lot more.
