Fun all round

Essex has a number of things to keep you busy. It has several historic attractions such as the Jacobean Audley End House set in beautiful countryside; the Grade II listed Hylands House in Chelmsford, Colchester Castle and Layer Marney Tower – the tallest Tudor gatehouse in England.

How about an adrenaline soaked adventure challenging the rapids at Lee Valley White Water or a tour on Epping Ongar Railway, the longest heritage railway in Essex? The Beth Chatto Gardens feature a stunning array of plants and flowers from the internationally acclaimed gardener, or jump on your bike and take the 69 mile Painters Trail through the Dedham Valley and see the landscape that inspired John Constable. 

Other sites include Cressing Temple, Headingham Castle and Ingatestone Hall. RHS Garden Hyde Hall is the perfect spot for some R&R, where you will be able to take in beautiful vistas of the surrounding countryside and unwind in beautiful gardens.

Colchester is England’s oldest recorded town, and here you can explore the contemporary art gallery Firstsite, and enjoy regular exhibitions.
