Transfer from Heathrow Airport to Colchester
Initially a capital of the Celts, Colchester came under the rule of Claudius, when he conquered the city in the year 43 A.D. As a result of this conquer, Colchester became the first Roman capital and also Britain’s first-ever town until it was finally entirely burnt by by Boudicca who was in charge of the Iceni tribe. The devastation of the city was a terrible act of looting, ransacking and torching. Legends say that if you search anywhere in the grounds of Colchester today you will find. The Iceni tribe were soon vanquished from the area but Colchester never regained its importance after that, remaining only to serve as a home for ex-legionaries.
Marks of ancient periods can also be seen today in Colchester today. A Norman castle, established by William the Conqueror, built at the same time with the Tower of London and pretty much similar in style was once the most imposing buildings of the area. Unfortunately, the castle has not been as lucky as its twin brother as it was mostly destroyed and abandoned. Even under this circumstances, the castle is still worth a visit. Colchester is also home to ancient Saxon and Norman churches, Roman walls, plenty of houses made of timber and also the oldest Victorian water tower in Britain. The buildings in Colchester continue to show bullet-holes and scars from the Civil War.
