Jane’s Walk Colchester returns for its 7th year this year on the May Bank Holiday weekend. It’s a great weekend for staying in town!
In 2011, Colchester hosted the UK’s first Jane’s Walk weekend; two days of local walks led by local people, taking place simultaneously around the world, celebrating the legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006), and this year marking the 101st anniversary of her birth and 11th year of the festival internationally.
