This summer, discover more about Colchester by taking a guided tour of the town. Visit Colchester are thrilled to be resuming their popular tours of the town, which are aimed at both residents and visitors to the borough.

With the summer months ahead, now is the perfect time to join a 'Camulodunum to Colchester' guided tour and take in the town's long and rich history, which dates back over 2,000 years, in the company of an Institute of Tourist Guiding qualified guide.

All tours hosted by Visit Colchester are taken by a qualified blue or green badge holder, which is the national standard guiding qualification universally recognised around the world as a mark of excellence.

Councillor Darius Laws, Portfolio Holder for Economy, Business and Heritage, said: “A walking tour is an outstanding way to discover a unique and personal perspective of the historic old town of Colchester. You can explore the local streetscape, heritage, and culture of Colchester, whilst at the same time benefitting from in-depth knowledge from a local guide. It is also a great eco-friendly way to discover all that Colchester has to offer. Book your tour today and discover more about Britain’s Oldest Recorded Town and First Roman City.”

Further tours will be available to book later in the year and look out for our ‘Rotten Romans and Naughty Normans Tour’ for the summer holidays – coming soon!

Camulodunum to Colchester is a 90-minute walk leading you through 2000 years of history from the time of the Romans all the way through to the present day.
