Inspiration

  1. Walton-on-the-Naze fossil hunting
    Breathe in the fresh sea air as you explore the beauty of Walton-on-the-Naze from the ground and from the top of the tower. Go fossil hunting on the beach and discover the heritage of historic Harwich.
  2. Roman artefacts in Colchester Caslte
    Calling all foodies... sample fresh Mersea oysters and indulge in a world-famous Tiptree cream tea! From Britain's First City, Colchester, to Mersea Island, explore our county of contrasts.
  3. Smiling women looking back sat on deckchair
    Travel by train to the Essex Coast for a chilled break in Southend-on-Sea - we have combined the traditional seaside experience (ice cream, fish and chips, rollercoasters) with spa, boutique shops and themed escape rooms.
  4. Family at Mersea
    Spend a couple of days enjoying Island life at Waldegraves Holiday Park, on Mersea Island. Choose a luxury static holiday home, camping or book a touring caravan pitch.
  5. Coastal & Estuary Wanderings itinerary
    Stay in a harbourside hotel and spend a few days exploring the Essex coast and estuaries. Boating, cream teas, a nature reserve, a maritime trail and a top-notch garden are all part of the trip.
