Very interesting and of course dog-friendly to walk around the ancient Dutch quarter and nose into these quaint buildings. Fascinating array of homes. Continue your visit into nearby Colchester just up the road, to enjoy a snack, cup of tea, or something stronger!!!

You need to take a good stroll and look carefully at the history of this Dutch built area of Colchester, again very interesting.

A bit tucked away and not an area you would go out your way to visit, but all said worth a small detour. Pleasant.

I can't think of many places that would look the same after 400 years or so. Yet the Dutch Quarter is exact;y that. Just off the high street, you can meander down roads that were built in the 1500s down to the River Colne and...More
