Holidays in Essex

The area and getting around

From the countryside to the city to the sea

The exciting thing about a holiday in Essex is being able to walk through a quaint English village one day, explore a fascinating city the next, then relax on the beach or play in the arcades on the third day! The diversity of Essex is all part of the fun. It’s also an extremely accessible county. Essex is only an hour from central London, so it’s easy to reach from all of London’s airports.

Essex – sights to impress!

Fancy visiting a incredible country park? Look no further than Great Notley in Braintree with 100 acres of parkland to explore, a wonderful wooden playground with a giant see-saw and climbing forest! Prefer a city vibe? Colchester offers you some historic gems to enthral and inform with its ancient castle, built on the site of Roman ruins, as well as the fun and entertainment of a town just waiting to welcome you, daytime or night time – don’t miss Colchester’s nightlife! Evening options include the Mercury Theatre and some wonderful waterside bars.

Shopping in Essex is nothing short of spectacular.

Looking for something more quirky? Manningtree’s ‘Quirky Old Stuff’ has a wonderful range of unusual and rare items for your home. Boutique fashion is also well catered for at Try B-Invogue in Epping which sells unique and exciting clothing and accessories.

Essex for foodies

For some truly excellent food you just can’t do better than Tim Ellen’s Flitch of Bacon Inn. Dunmow. This Michelin star restaurant offers divine dining including a super 5-course tasting menu with home-made chocolates to follow.

Top 5 travel tips in Essex

1. Visit the wonderful animals of Colchester Zoo

Essex’s zoo in Colchester gives you an opportunity to see some of the world’s most spectacular animals. Enjoy the ‘become a keeper for a day’ experience and hand feed an elephant or giraffe!

2. Stroll through Beth Chatto’s Gardens

In 1960 Beth Chatto took an overgrown wasteland and replanted it with plants which would thrive and grow in each of the multiple conditions of the gardens. Using a ‘right plant, right place’ philosophy, Beth transformed this wasted space into a delightful country garden that is a wonderful visitor attraction.

3. Have a beach day in Clacton on Sea

Clacton’s wonderful seafront offers fun and entertainment for all the family. Don’t miss the Clacton Pier with wonderful sea views, ten pin bowling and of course penny arcades!

4. Discover the UK’s most amusingly named pathways!

The word ‘gant’ is unique to Braintree, and means ‘passageway’, coming from the Flemish word ‘gang’ (corridor). That we do know, but why one of them is called, ‘Pig’s Head in the Pottage Pot Gant’ is less obvious!

5. Have a sweet day out at Tiptree’s Jam Factory!

What more could anyone want from a day out than to see how Tiptree make their famous jam? Based in – of course – Tiptree, Essex, the factory tour is a real treat for those with an irrepressible sweet tooth!
