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
The Quarter has been completely renovated to what appears to be the original view and makes a very authentic area.
I regularly walk through the Dutch Quarter on my way to town, it is a delight to pass through. There are many interesting houses, a Roman Theatre a Greek Orthodox church and the original building which housed the Blue Coat school. Well worth lingering to enjoy!
