Colchester is one of the earliest Roman cities in Britain. The first veteran legionary colony founded here, the city was the seat of the imperial cult, in the form of the temple of Claudius, and was razed to the ground by Queen Boudicca.
Visible remains today include the only Circus in Briain, the city walls, one of the best-preserved Roman gateways in Britain, and an early church. The foundations of the Temple of Claudius survive under Colchester Castle. This walking tour will take in these sites, and end with an opportunity to visit Colchester Museum in Colchester Castle. (Entrance to the Museum is not covered in the cost for the walk.)
The tour begins at Colchester Town station – this can be reached by a train from Colchester, which has services from London Liverpool Street; please note that Colchester Town and Colchester are different stations.
