Clacton hosts a large Air Show as part of its action packed August Bank Holiday programme. It is also justly proud of its beautifully maintained themed seafront gardens that line the upper promenade. Adjacent to Martello Bay, West Beach has gently shelving sand and with the added bonus of the operation of Clacton's pioneering child safety wristband scheme, gives parents that extra peace of mind.
