Thrifty Car Rental Colchester

Colchester, located in Essex, is a great place to pick up a car rental from Thrifty Car Rental and enjoy the history of Britain. Since Colchester claims to be Britain's oldest town, there are many museums to visit and learn about the history of the town, such as Colchester Castle museum, the Natural History museum, and Timperleys Clock Museum. You could also visit Firstsite, a cutting edge art gallery, or any of a number of other places you can choose from.

Colchester Castle is an award-winning museum that covers 2000 years of the town's history. The historic castle is built on the remnants of the Temple of Claudius, one of the famous Roman temples. The museum features displays depicting scenes from the Stone Age to the Civil War and the siege of Colchester. After you are finished exploring the castle, you may want to drive your car rental and visit some of the other museums in town, including the Natural History Museum, to learn about the effects humans have on the environment, and the Timperleys Clock Museum, home to one of the largest clock collections in Britain.

Another place in Colchester to take your car rental is Firstsite, the main art gallery and cultural attraction in town. Found in a lovely Georgian town home, Firstsite has a wide variety of contemporary art ranging from paintings to live art by artists both regional and international. There is also a shop, café and garden to enjoy.

Another place you can stop and see is Saint Botolphs Priory, a 12th century priory found near the town centre. Or you can take your car rental north to High Woods Country Park to see the local wildlife and beautiful scenery. Having a car rental from Thrifty Car Rental makes it easy to reach any or all of the attractions that Colchester has to offer.
