Colchester Meeting House


“The World is My Country” exhibition:

As part of Heritage Open Days weekend, Colchester Quakers are opening their Meeting House on Saturday 12 September to the public. To mark the ongoing centenary of the First World War there will be an exhibition of posters, The World is My Country, which tell the unknown stories of people who opposed the war at the time.

On the Open Day, you can also view the Meeting House, read the Quaker Peace Testimony and watch a short (20 minute) video about Quakerism in Colchester.
Refreshments available – All welcome – Admission free.
Wheelchair access throughout ground floor area and wheelchair accessible toilet. The main Meeting Room and the exhibition are on the ground floor. The first floor is unfortunately not accessible by wheelchair.

From Colchester North station, you can either walk (about 20 minutes) or take a bus from the stop in North Station Road. (From the station, walk under the rail bridge and across the road, next to Wickes builders merchants.) All services from this stop go to the junction of High Street and Head Street, from where it is a two minute walk to the Meeting House.
From Colchester Town station, it is easy to walk via Osborne Street and Saint John’s Street. Trains to Colchester Town station are less frequent than those on the main line so check in advance for details.
There is no car parking at the Meeting House. The nearest public car park is Saint Mary’s on Balkerne Hill (which you can drive into from the north-bound carriageway of Balkerne Hill).
Cycle parking stands are available near the Meeting House.
