7 fun things to do in Colchester

We have a number of Guardians enjoying cheap living in our vacant property in Colchester! So Camelot asked ‘What is there to do in Colchester when you’re at a loose end?’

Colchester, located within the county of Essex, is the former capital of England. It has a number of museums, ruins and historic buildings to discover. Not to mention shops, restaurants and fun attractions. We have some Property Guardians who live in our vacant property for just £54.50pw, so Camelot decided to find out what there is to do in the area.

Here are our top 7 things to do in Colchester

1. Colchester Zoo

With 260 different species, it’s no wonder that Colchester Zoo is the first Google autocomplete… set in 60 acres of parkland, navigating your way through all the habitats and activities will be fun for all. Visit their website to book tickets and find out more

2. The Colchester Arts Centre

Present since 1989 as a hub for music, comedy and performance, this arts centre caters for all tastes. Check out some bargain movies with Street Cinema or the monthly Farmers Market.

3. Go Bananas Colchester

This soft play centre for children is huge… the largest indoor adventure play centre in the South East. The best thing about it? It’s not only for kids… they have grown up parties too. Whether it’s a hen or stag party, or just a night out with your mates take a look.

4. Jump Street

Moments from Go Bananas you’ll find Jump Street (not the Channing Tatum one). This Trampoline Park will have you jumping for joy (sorry)… Not only do they hold adult fitness classes, but you can attempt dodge ball, total wipe out on trampolines plus much more.

5. Kingsford Park Spa

Recently refurbished and marked with a VIP opening, the Kingsford Park Spa have teamed up with Elemis to offer a range of new treatments.

Located just 2 miles from the town centre and in some lovely surrounding it is the perfect place to relax and indulge. They currently have some New Spa Opening Offers

6. Colchester Castle Park

Colchester Castle Park has much going on, Gardens, Play Areas and of course Colchester Castle – much of it is free to explore. For an admission fee you can visit Colchester Castle Museum. Containing interactive displays, star exhibits and new experiences (such as building a Norman archway) there’s a lot to keep you occupied. Find out more about the park here

7. Mercury Theatre Colchester

You don’t have to head to the West End to go to the Theatre! With a performances of all sorts almost every evening, you can find something to your taste. See what’s on.

You can also get involved and support their growth – why not sponsor a brick?

After all of this, if you’re tired head for a drink at Qube, the boutique bar in Colchester.
