Family seaside resort with sandy beaches, seafront gardens and quaint narrow streets. The pier is the second longest in England, offering fairground rides, ten pin bowling and sea angling. Just to the north is The Naze, an unspoilt headland of heath, saltmarshes and sandy beaches - it's 70 feet high cliffs are being eroded away.
It is also the site of the 86 foot Octagonal Naze Tower which is currently used as a gallery which spreads across six floors and houses three exhibitions each year. Other features include a museum which details the history of the Naze Tower and tea rooms where you can stop and enjoy refreshments between different exhibitions.
