I had never been to Colchester before, so was quite looking forward to visiting. It is often classified as the oldest town in England, known as Camulodunon before the Roman invasion.
Its most famous site is the Norman Keep, built on the ruins of a Roman temple. Boudica sacked the town, but it was rebuilt later though the Roman Capital was moved to London.
I was most impressed by the floral displays everywhere, especially the hanging baskets.
Lots and lots of half-timbered houses, one in particular still riddled with bullet holes from the Civil war.
