Must See

Colchester is rich with art history dating back to the first century, but it's also worth checking out the modern art at Firstsite, designed by renowned Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly. Firstsite presents artists and creative events through a range of visual mediums, including exhibitions, screenings and dance. There's also live music and a cinema programme.

Must Do

Layer Marney Tower is less than 15 minutes' drive from the hotel and lays claim to tallest Tudor gatehouse in the country. If you climb the 80 feet to get to the top, you're rewarded with a view of surrounding Essex greenery. In a guided tour you can admire ornate architecture that was once home to the Marney family and learn about why it was never completed. Call ahead, as hours vary.

What's New

At Colchester Castle there are new interactive displays, where you can try your hand at activities that hark back to Roman times. From building arches to maneuvering a chariot, visitors can test their dexterity and bring history to life. The museum also offers tours with knowledgeable guides – or you can guide yourself with the castle app, complete with animations.

Don't Go Home Without

Visit the award-winning Beth Chatto Gardens, half an hour's drive from the hotel, for settings that could have floated out of a Monet painting. The property has gravel and water gardens, each with plants grouped according to their growing conditions. You can also check out the extensive nursery, with more than 2,000 species of herbs and bulbs. Then enjoy homemade cakes and scones with tea.

Tips

Colchester, as the oldest recorded town in the UK, hides a wealth of stories in its nooks and crannies, which you can find with a bit of exploration. During Queen Mary's oppressive reign, for example, protestants from the area were burned at the stake. Then, after Elizabeth succeeded the throne, an influx of Dutch refugees influenced the town's culture. Keep your eyes open for history and lore.
