Colchester is a large town in the county of Essex, around 50 miles north-east of London. Thought to be one of England’s oldest towns, Colchester is the location of an imposing Norman castle and Roman ruins. The University of Essex is based in Colchester, with its main campus in nearby Wivenhoe Park.

What’s it like to study a Masters in Colchester?

Colchester is proud of its status as England’s oldest recorded town, with the Roman historian Pliny the Elder mentioning it in the year 77. Colchester was the first Roman capital of Britain and the remains of several ancient structures can still be explored across the town. After the Norman conquest of Britain in the 11th century, Colchester Castle was built over the ruins of the Roman Temple of Claudius. This impressive Norman keep – the largest in Europe – still stands today and is a popular tourist attraction.

Colchester is also home to the ruins of the oldest church in Britain, dating back to the 4th century. The town’s Dutch Quarter was where Flemish Protestant refugees lived during the 16th century, a charming neighbourhood of timber framed houses. It’s also where ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ was written by Jane and Anne Taylor at the beginning of the 19th century.

There’s more to Colchester than Normans and nursery rhymes, however. Firstsite is a contemporary art and culture centre that hosts a variety of exhibitions (including a painstakingly restored Roman mosaic).

Venturing out of Colchester, ‘Constable Country’ is within easy reach – a pastoral landscape immortalised by the paintings of John Constable. Dedham Vale and the Stour Valley, frequent sources of inspiration for Constable, are just outside Colchester.
