Things to do in Essex: St Botolph’s Priory
Visit impressive early Norman architecture, founded in the 11th century. Heavily damaged by canon fire during the Civil War siege of 1648, a fascinating visit awaits.
Founded between 1093 and 1100, the priory of St Julian and St Botolph was one of the first religious houses in England to adopt the Augustinian rule. Sadly, only the ruined remains of the nave survive today. Yet, this remains one of the most interesting and visually appealing historic sites in Colchester. The site is managed by English Heritage and entry is FREE.
