Very interesting and of course dog-friendly to walk around the ancient Dutch quarter and nose into these quaint buildings. Fascinating array of homes. Continue your visit into nearby Colchester just up the road, to enjoy a snack, cup of tea, or something stronger!!!

I can't think of many places that would look the same after 400 years or so. Yet the Dutch Quarter is exact;y that. Just off the high street, you can meander down roads that were built in the 1500s down to the River Colne and...More
