Essex Area Ramblers

At the heart of walking in Essex

Colchester Heritage Tour


Sun, 15. Jul 2018, 10:00 - 12:00
Colchester Arts Centre - Colchester,
Area Events Dairy


Enjoy an entertaining and fact-filled walk around the country's oldest recorded town, in the company of former Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell.

The thing is, there's just so much history in Colchester - far too much to fit in to one walk. So there is now two different versions - A and B - both starting at Colchester Arts Centre and finishing at Firstsite. They will run alternately - so if you enjoyed one, why not try the other?!

Tour starts at 10am prompt from outside the Colchester Arts Centre Box Office in Church Street (adjacent to the Quaker Meeting House).

"The routes will embrace ancient and modern" says Sir Bob, who is also a former Mayor of Colchester as well as being the Town's MP for the past 18 years.

The estimated time of the walk, with stops for commentary, is two hours. Places on each tour are limited to a maximum of 20 people. PRE-BOOKING ESSENTIAL! Phone 01206 500900

Suggested fee of £5 per person, but pay what you can afford!
Proceeds will go towards a project by Sir Bob to erect a statue of sisters Jane and Ann Taylor who in 1806, in Colchester, wrote arguably the world's favourite nursery rhyme: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".

Sensible walking shoes and emergency brolly recommended!
