About

A gently-rolling landscape with green lanes winding through farmland, river valleys and picturesque villages and cottages at every turn. The Essex countryside is ideal for cycling.

Visit Saffron Walden, an ancient town with a rich heritage of old buildings reflecting its wealth as a rural market town.

Stop off at Thaxted, an attractive historic town and a real architectural gem. As well as its landmark buildings, St John the Baptist church and the 15th century Guildhall there is plenty more to see.
