Transfer from Gatwick Airport to Colchester
Colchester is the first town of Britain, initially a small village prior to the Romans conquered the area. The town then soon fell under the rule of Queen Boadicea in the year AD60. Not long after the Iceni tribe took control over Colchester, the Romans gathered the troops and managed to re-take the town from the Iceni tribe. Even if returned under Roman rule, Colchester was never to re-become the town it once was as the two battles severely damaged the town. Following the attack the Romans constructed a wall all around the town. Part of it can still be seen today. Another of Colchester’s great ancient additions is the Norman castle built in the 11th century, which is considered to be the twin brother of the Tower of London. William the Conqueror was the founder of the castle, built over the remains of a Roman temple. In 1648, during the Civil War, after an 11 week siege over the town the army gave up after they were forced to eat rats as a result of the lack of food.
The ruins of a 12th-century priory can also be admired in Colchester as well as other ancient churches and buildings.
