Colchester Mini Guide

If you have hired a car, two places of interest are worth a day out. Mersea Island in the estuary is very much a reminder of yesteryear with tiny hamlets as well as an area of marshland, home to migrating birds. You should also visit Wivenhoe, where the waterfront and shopping street also remind one of times long lost.
Today the town is growing rapidly, helped by tourism, the service industry, and its attraction as a commuter town for London.
