Traditional Seaside Towns with a Twist

Essex captures the heart and soul of the British seaside holiday. The beachside resorts here are fun, jolly and jam-packed with vintage pleasures – like funfairs on the promenade, fish and chips on the pier and donkey rides on the sands. It’s a place to recreate your childhood holiday memories and introduce your own little ones to life’s simpler pleasures.

Yet these beloved resorts aren’t afraid to mix the traditional with the new. In Southend-on-Sea, you’ll discover art galleries alongside the amusements and inspired international cuisine to match the classic cockles. Towns such as Clacton-on-Sea attract big-name acts and hold distinctive carnivals and events.

Away from the coast, you’ll find inspiring countryside interspersed with beautiful medieval villages and towns, the most spectacular of which is Colchester; a gorgeous historic centre that’s home to boutiques, restaurants, a famous zoo and a treasure trove of museums and ancient sites.
