Fantastic, Colchester has so much to offer, yes there is greenery - beautiful walks and glorious scenery, nearby the coast and a lot to offer the boating community, an historic town and the people are very friendly. I would recommend it to anyone.

The surrounding countryside is lovely, and the sea is very close-by. But you need to be careful about which part of town you choose; it has one of England's biggest sink estates. It's a historic, generally quiet town, close enough to London and Norwich, but hit hard by the recession and long-term economic decline. The town has some lovely corners, and a river walk, but it's far from pleasant at night (and town centre best avoided at weekend nights, unless you're a noisy drunk up for a fight).

We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page.
We hope this helps.
