Colchester area guide

About the area

Some of the most important events in British history have taken place in and around Colchester over the past 2000 years. The Romans, Saxons, Normans and Victorians all left their mark which can still be seen today. Colchester today is a modern and fast-growing town with many award-winning places to visit and eat. People love the shopping with its excellent range of small, specialist shops alongside all the big-name stores in a compact town centre bordered by the most complete Roman wall in the country.

Our Colchester Sales and Lettings teams are vastly experienced in terms of their knowledge of this bustling city, and many of them live close to where they work, meaning they know the area and are able to answer all your questions.


Colchester today is a thriving, modern city bursting with attractions and activities to suit every taste, including Colchester Zoo (named a 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Winner for Attractions, ranking it among the best in the world) and Colchester Castle. Explore nearby countryside for a breath of fresh air including Constable Country in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Mersea Island, home of the famous Colchester native oysters. Colchester also offers great retail therapy and fantastic places to eat and drink. Browse through quiet streets lined with small specialist shops and restaurants. There is an abundance of excellent restaurants offering cuisine from around the world. For culture seekers, discover interesting public art in unexpected places and historical treasures in award-winning museums. The Castle Park and Highwoods County Park are fabulous ‘green lungs’ within the town.

Colchester is famed for the quality of its schools, with many buyers and renters looking to move into the catchment areas to take full advantage. Schools located off the Lexden Road are particularly desirable and include those shown in the links below.

If you want to travel further afield, Colchester is surrounded by many beautiful villages and the Essex and Suffolk countryside including Dedham Vale and Constable Country. In addition to central Colchester, the branch has extensive coverage including (but not limited to), Langham, Boxted, West Bergholt, Great Horkesley, Fingringhoe and Stanway. London can be reached inside the hour by train, while the port of Harwich is just 15 miles away and Stansted airport, 30 miles away.

The Colchester Branch is the longest established of all the Boydens branches with a combined industry experience totalling hundreds of years. Our lettings teams look after hundreds of properties for local, national and international landlords.

Property profile

As befitting a city the size of Colchester, and which lays claim to being one of the fastest growing towns in the country, the choice of property is vast. From small, bespoke town centre regeneration programmes to large edge of town developments and waterfront re-development at the Hythe, new and newish homes are plentiful, and increasing in number. These newer homes are complemented by an established older stock, offering everything from Victorian first-time buyer homes to imposing family homes in the popular Lexden area.
