The new 44-page Visitor Guide and Discover DL Mini Guide provide a snapshot of what Colchester has to offer potential visitors to the borough, to assist them during their stay.

In addition, a new one page insert to the Discover Guide features detailed information about the popular Guided Walking Tours programme run from the Visitor Information Centre.

The new tourism campaign, The Beautiful Borough of Colchester, launched in December, features heavily in both guides encouraging visitors to Colchester to head further afield into the borough after visiting the town centre. The new guides highlights tourism opportunities in Colchester town centre, Dedham, Mersea, Roman River, Chappel, Tiptree and Wivenhoe.

Visit Colchester ask visitors to engage with the Visitor Information Centre team based at Hollytrees Museum in person, online and via social media to find out more about these areas.

Councillor Tim Young deputy leader of Colchester Borough Council said: “Colchester has so much to offer tourists – from the town centre, to our stunning coast and countryside. These new resoures can be collected free of charge from the Visitor Information Centre, based at Hollytrees Museum, or ordered online via the Visit Colchester website.

“The team has listened to feedback throughout the year and made improvements to this year’s guides, such as a larger, easier-to-read map and more information about our popular guided walking tours. We hope everyone enjoys them and we look forward to welcoming new visitors to the town in 2019.”
