Red Lion Yard

Red Lion Yard offers the perfect environment for independent retailers and F&B operators to thrive. A beautiful historic destination, RLY is also home to Grade I-listed Red Lion Hotel which, built in 1465, is Colchester’s oldest building.


An Independent Spirit

Boasting hairdressers, beauty bars, jewellery and homeware shops, Red Lion Yard attracts operators from far and wide, including Victoria Yum, a high-end bakery which relocated from Hackney in 2020. The Yard benefits from recent refurbishment and on-going placemaking activity including regular events & seasonal dressing.

Occupiers benefit from a tenant engagement service and promotion across web, social media, local press and paid advertising.

A curated pop up programme and seasonal activation calendar further enhance the customer experience and engagement at Lion Walk.
