Welcome to Essex
The London 2012 Games is the sporting event of our lifetime. During the Games athletes will inspire the people of Essex to embrace Olympic and Paralympic values, creating a sporting legacy that will change our county forever.
You can be part of this once in a life time experience when you visit Essex in 2012. With the Olympic Park at Stratford located on the doorstep of the county and great transport links to the heart of London, you can easily get to the greatest show on Earth.
As well as hosting two action-packed Olympic Games events, the Mountain Bike events at Hadleigh Farm and the Canoe Slalom events at the Lee Valley White Water Centre, the region offers a variety of fabulous places to visit and places to stay.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful county.
