The Town of Colchester

Colchester (pop. 121,000) is a historic town located 51.2 miles (82.4 km) northeast of London on the river Coine. It is the oldest recorded Roman town in Britain, and therefore claims to be the oldest town in Britain. Roman structures are still standing in Colchester and the town's walls are the oldest in Britain. Gosbecks Archaeological Park is situated south-west of the town, and consists of a preserved Roman theatre and Romano-British temple marked out on the ground. Colchester Castle was completed around 1100 CE and today houses a public museum. Colchester is also home to several other museums and cultural venues, such as theaters and concert halls. Colchester's Dutch Quarter is the town's most attractive archtectural area, which dates from Tudor times. Because this is a university town, there are many restaurants, clubs and pubs that cater to students.
