There are 101 matches for your search
Colchester is renowned for being Britain’s oldest recorded town but it is also a thriving modern centre with much to offer meeting planners and delegates alike.

Steeped in 2,000 years of history dating back to Roman times, Colchester offers historic venues and heritage sites as well as contemporary venues for meetings, conference and events. Close to both the coast and countryside, Colchester is also a great choice of meeting destination for teambuilding events and corporate activities.

Colchester is easily reached via the A12, via direct trains links from London and via flights into Stansted Airport for international delegates. Proximity to London is an added bonus for delegates wishing to remain close to the capital.

Conference venues here are diverse and cater for all requirements. The Town Hall is a striking historic venue, ideal for weddings, conferences and exhibitions with 5 meeting rooms offering distinct styles and period elegance catering for up to 300 delegates. Layer Marney Tower is an unusual venue and one of the country’s most dramatic historic buildings. It has been adapted to cater for weddings, meetings, conferences, banquets, training and teambuilding events boasting a selection of meeting rooms available as well as over 100 acres of grounds. In stark contrast, Firstsite is an exciting new venue where art meets commerce. This iconic contemporary building houses exhibition space as well as a 200-seat auditorium plus further high-spec meeting rooms and is well suited to corporate events and conferences as well as exhibitions.
