Sited just 50 miles north of London is the historic Essex town of Colchester. Many of our Essex escorts come from around this area so we thought it prudent to share some information about the town.
It has strong Roman origins, having been a garrison town and once the Roman capital of Britain. It also has claims to being one of the oldest towns in Britain. Our Essex escorts from Colchester are very proud of their town and rightly so.
Today it is more famous as a military town and the massive redevelopment of the Garrison completed in 2008 has ensured that local girls are never short of a soldier!
It has excellent transport links into London so is a great place to stay if you wish to enjoy a quieter stay on your visit. The East Coast Mainline rail link and the A12 road make getting into the centre of London a breeze.
Modern Colchester is a relatively relaxed place, our escorts from Essex tell us it is one of those kinds of places where everybody knows everyone else. This has not always been the case because the town has been a centre of power going right back to before the Romans entered Britain. When the Romans came they made Colchester the centre of their empire in Britain, establishing it as the focus of power and government as well as the main military garrison.
This importance continued well into the middle ages with the establishment of Colchester Castle. Built over the remains of a Roman temple the castle was an important part of the local landscape and an important seat of power for thousands of years.
It was given a royal charter in 1189 by King Richard I and has held it ever since, for over 800 years. It was during this time that it became such an important part of the UK textiles industry, with the influx of thousands of cloth makers and weavers from the low countries of Flanders and the Netherlands in the late 16th century confounding this. That may go some way to explain why Essex escorts from Colchester are sol well dressed!
Modern Colchester is a thriving town with lots of exquisite boutiques and quality restaurants. If you are lucky enough to secure a date with an Essex escort from Colchester then it may be a great idea to get her to show you around her home town.
