How to find us:

By Bus

Most buses pass down St. Botolph's Street, some turn right and stop at the bus station in Osborne Street.  Some stop at St. Botolph's Circus roundabout adjacent to Colchester Town rail station and magistrates court (both only a few minutes walk).  If alighting at the bus station walk past Gala bingo and down to the pedestrian crossing.  Cross to the corner of St. Botolph's Street and walk up past Franklins and Allens & Son Butchers.  We are a few doors up from Allens.

By Train

Colchester Town rail station is only a few minutes away.  Turn right out of the station, cross the road at the double pedestrian crossing to the corner of St. Botolph's Street and we are just a few shops up on the left (past Franklins and Allen & Son butchers).  There are regular trains from Colchester North Station to this town centre station.

By Car

There are numerous car parks nearby.  Priory Street, Vineyard Street and the NCP (above Gala Bingo) car parks are accessible by driving down Queen Street/St. Botolph's Street.  You can also access Britannia car park, the NCP and Vineyard Street from St. Botolph's roundabout.  Look for parking offers on the ticket machines at off-peak times before you pay.  St. Botolph's Street is one way and can only be accessed by driving up East Hill, please note that town centre traffic restrictions are now in place and do not allow turning right into Queen Street from the High Street.

We have a parking bay outside the shop for loading/unloading between 9.30am and 4.00pm, short stops are allowed during this time.
