Spend the Day at Colchester Zoo

Visit RHS Garden Hyde Hall

In the historic city of Chelmsford, this beautiful public garden has a delightful woodland walk and many more acres of stunning landscaped grounds. The estate, which has been carefully cultivated and expanded since the mid-20th century, also holds the Essex Craft and Design Show in the spring and the Hall Flower Show in the summer.

Explore Essex's Attractive North Sea Coast

The county has several historic seaside resorts, some of the best known of which include Southend-on-Sea near the Thames Estuary, and Clacton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze on the Tendring peninsula. Visit the medieval port of Harwich, which was an important base for the Royal Navy from the 17th to the 20th Century and is known for its well-preserved 18th and 19th century landmarks. Further south on the coast is Foulness, a large island and marshland that is renowned for its thriving bird life and families of seals.
