Wivenhoe House, our four-star luxury hotel is surrounded by glorious parkland. It combines the romance and charm of an eighteenth-century Grade II listed house with all the comforts of a contemporary hotel and an award-winning brasserie.

Business services

Joining our business community will put you at the centre of business innovation and collaboration. Our Colchester Campus offers outstanding facilities and services for business, backed by our consultancy expertise and hands-on business support.

Law clinic

The Essex Law Clinic is a pro-bono organisation offering free, confidential legal advice to members of the local community. The clinic gives our students the opportunity to gain experience by working on cases together with a supervising solicitor. We offer advice in many different fields, such as employment, property and contract law.

Our parkland

Wivenhoe Park, in which our Colchester Campus is set, has a fascinating history. Today, its striking landscape of more than 200 acres provides a tranquil place for all to enjoy. The parkland is home to a range of plants and wildlife including some extraordinary and historic trees.

While we welcome visitors to enjoy our parkland we do ask everyone to be considerate and to keep dogs on leads and clean up after them.

We have produced a guided tree walk which takes you around the parkland and describes the trees you see along the way.
