Home to a fantastic zoo, great shopping and an abundance of historical sites, Britain’s first Roman city has plenty to offer. If you’re heading to Colchester for a day out, leave the car behind and hop on the train instead to get there in around 20 minutes. Even those road-building Romans would think that was a no-brainer. Find out all the travel information you need right here, including train times from Ipswich to Colchester and skip those annoying booking fees by securing your tickets from us.

Tips on how to book cheaper train tickets

More for families

Taking your little monkeys to the zoo? Up to four children aged 5-15 can travel for just £2 each on Off-Peak services. Even better, kids under five go free, leaving you with a lot more money in your pocket to spend on your day out.

Pack your Railcard

Another way to save money on family outings is with a Family and Friends Railcard. There are plenty of other types of Railcard available too and each one can save you 1/3 on most train journeys.

Time it right

No one wants to travel in a busy carriage if they can help it. Look for Off-Peak times and not only will you have more elbow room, but you’ll get cheaper tickets too. Check our journey planner to see which times apply.
