Our Colchester

Welcome to In Colchester

In Colchester is the "go-to" place for all your city centre information. We have a directory page full of all businesses in the city centre, an events page, the latest offers in the city and a great range of fun activities for you to take part in.

Since the launch of In Colchester in August 2019, we have grown the website to ensure it fulfils our visitors needed. The website can help you plan your trip or decide where to go for dinner.

City centre businesses are a priority of ours and we want to encourage visitors into the city and shop locally. From big brands to unique independents, Colchester city centre has it all. Visit www.incolchester.co.uk.


All our BID businesses have a directory listing on In Colchester. This includes up to 4 images of your business, a description about who you are, where someone can find you and contact details! We even have a map to show your exact location! Please visit www.incolchester.co.uk and search your business name to ensure all information is correct.

If a BID levy payer, or Friend of the BID then the best way to amend your details is using your business user log in. This allows you to amend the directory and upload offers and events. You can activate a business user log in by emailing marketing@ourcolchester.co.uk. You can also let us know if you've forgotten your details and we can send a re-activation email.

Alternatively, non-levy payers may be included in the directory. They will not be able to gain admin access but we can amend these details for you. See other entries to ensure you share the necessary criteria with us at marketing@ourcolchester.co.uk


We have a page dedicated to events in Colchester city centre! We want to fill this page with excitement, so if you are a BID levy payer and have an event going on at your venue, in-store or around the city, email marketing@ourcolchester.co.uk so you can set yourself up as a business user and feature your events on the website.


Our offers page is similar to our events page. Whether it is something small, or a massive sale, we want to know! Upload your offer to InColchester directly by using your business user log in. If you are a BID levy payer, and you do not have one of these, then you can get yourself set up by emailing marketing@ourcolchester.co.uk. That way, you'll be able to upload events and offers, and amend the directory.

There's a good chance, if our Street Ambassadors see your offers while they walk around the city, they might pop in and ask to get you all set up.
