|South Colchester has
fewer major road links than the other areas and tends to
be a quieter area with villages such as Layer-de-la-Haye,
Abberton, Rowhedge, Peldon and Langenhoe popular
locations. There is also a road out to Mersea Island on
the coast less than 10 miles away.
Rail links to London (Liverpool Street/Stratford), Ipswich, Chelmsford and the coast at Harwich/Clacton are very good with regular services from North Station. There are some Colchester to Liverpool Street express services and these take as little as 40-45 minutes to complete the journey. Parking at Colchester Station during weekdays can be difficult unless you get there very early - although it has a very large car park it tends to get full and the only spaces are often at the far end of the car park.
