The best things to do in Colchester

Colchester is the oldest city in England on record. Its main streets still retain some historical features that blend with the new, modern buildings and attractions in Colchester. Castle Museum is one of the main things to see in Colchester where one of the most important collections of Roman antiquities discovered locally is on exhibit. Besides the museum, you can visit another one of the famous Colchester attractions, the castle whose impressive walls are four meters wide. Another of the many places to visit in Colchester is St Botolph's Priory, dating from the 12th century. Like the castle, it was built of Roman bricks, although now only the pillars, the west face and the nave are standing. Other stuff to do in Colchester includes visiting the Colchester Bourne Mill building. It's situated next to Bourne pond and was built as a fishing center. A little further away, in the center it is the Town Hall, a building crowned with a tower and statue of St. Helena and Jerusalem.
