What are the best times of year to visit Essex?

The Essex Coast truly comes to life during the summer months. July and August in particular benefit from much warmer weather with temperatures reaching an average high of 23 degrees, however you'll find plenty going on during the school holidays throughout the year.

Off-peak dates are also a great time to visit and you'll find plenty of Essex attractions open for business during the autumn, winter and spring months. If you're planning to take your dog on holiday in Essex, you'll be able to enjoy endless walks on the beach as seasonal restrictions are lifted.
