After a scrumptious lunch at Carluccio's we ventured out for a walk around the Dutch Quarter for exercise. It's fascinating to get an insight as to where people lived hundreds of years ago, the architecture is wonderful making it very picturesque and well worth a visit. So much to see around Colchester that I hope to return and spend more... 更多
Worth seeing the attractive and colourful Dutch-style houses built around the 16th century but unless you are an architecture student or historian this hilly area just off the High Street shouldn't need more than half an hour of your time.
Walk up hill or down hill through the Dutch quarter and admire the architecture. These houses are still inhabited by Colcestrians and the streets are very narrow so watch our for the traffic which is just following the Satnav directions.
Please have a lovely quiet wander or take a guieded tour. Well worth a visit . See the old Siege House with its bullet holes.Dutch quarter was where the Dutch ref refugee came to live and start their Cottage industry's.
Nice, pitoresque and cosy area so close to the city. Just after diner to have a walk through. Colchster cherrish their heritage, bevause they maintain them well/
Great place to live. Close enough to town to enjoy the amenities and tucked away enough to avoid the drunken cavortings of the drunken youngsters on weekend evenings!
Well worth a visit, stroll around the Dutch Quarter and enjoy the quaint buildings and general Dutch architecture seems a million miles away from the busy Colchester high street, to say the least it's different.
Well worth a look when in the area as this is the Dutch quarter where the houses are not only old but also small and a piece of the Colchester history old beams and old houses my parents live in this area hence my visit and stay locally lovely to re- visit while down to see them
