The Colne Light Ship


King Edward Quay, Colchester, CO2 8JB


Accessibility: **PLEASE NOTE** Not suitable for people with mobility problems. Adequate street parking.

You would never guess that there is a small but perfectly formed intimate performance space inside the Light Ship, seating just 45 people.

The red ship has been a feature on the Colne as you cross the river at The Hythe for many years. Launched in 1954 as a light ship, it is now used by the sea cadets for training.
