We are visiting Colchester for a 70th birthday and booked Peaks House. We all enjoyed the Dutch Quarter. Very peaceful, lovely to have a wander the streets and enjoy the living history.

You need to take a good stroll and look carefully at the history of this Dutch built area of Colchester, again very interesting.

Well worth finding this area in Colchester. Quite different to the main town. Buildings are interesting.

It is easy to find from the High street as West Stockwell Street is next to the Town Hall. The other streets are all connected. As expected none of these houses have double glazing or Upvc doors or windows! It was apparently through the Dutch...More
