Welcome to
the Colchester Restaurant Guide

Colchester is said to be the oldest recorded town in Britain on the grounds that it was mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who died in AD 79. Before the Roman conquest of Britain it was already a centre of power for Cunobelin - known to Shakespeare as Cymbeline - king of the Catuvellauni (c.5 BC - AD 40), who minted coins there.

Medieval Colchester’s main landmark is Colchester Castle, which is an 11th century Norman keep, and built on top of the vaults of the old Roman temple. There are several other notable medieval ruins in Colchester, including the surviving gateway of the Benedictine abbey of St. John the Baptist (known locally as “St. John’s Abbey”), and the ruins of the Augustinian priory of St. Botolph (known locally as “St. Botolph’s Priory”).

Colchester is home to several museums, the Mercury Theatre (one the region’s leading repertory theatres) and the Colchester Arts Centre.
