Visit Colchester has launched its brand new 2020 tourism guides. The comprehensive 44-page Colchester Visitor Guide, with accompanying Discover Colchester Mini Guide (including a free town map), provides a snapshot of what the borough has to offer potential visitors and will assist them during their stay.

2020 also sees the launch of a new Walking Tours leaflet, providing detailed information about the popular Guided Walking Tours programme run by the Visitor Information Centre. Find out more and discover the dramatic events that have shaped Colchester’s past with a qualified Blue or Green Badge Tour Guide in 2020.

Visitors are encouraged to engage with the friendly Visit Colchester information centre team (based at Hollytrees Museum) in person, online or via social media to find out more about Colchester. The team possess a huge wealth of knowledge about our Beautiful Borough, from things to see and do, to what’s on, where to stay, where to eat, and travelling to/from Colchester – they are always on hand to help.

Please visit to start planning a visit. Or contact the team on 01206 282920.

Councillor Julie Young, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Performance and Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “Colchester is a treasure trove packed with many things to see and do. From our bustling town centre with historical treasures to discover, independent shops and big-name retailers, to our stunning coast and countryside, there is something to suit all ages and tastes.

Our new guides can be collected free of charge from the Visitor Information Centre (based at Hollytrees Museum), ordered online ahead of a visit via the Visit Colchester website and picked up across the country through the Tourist Information Centre network and other distribution points. We hope that everyone finds them useful and look forward to welcoming many new visitors to the town in 2020.”
