The magic of Essex – England’s oldest county
The county of Essex offers a rich tapestry of everything that makes Britain great – which makes it an excellent place to live.
The county’s gently rolling landscapes are speckled with picturesque towns and villages, all with their own individual history and character. If you enjoy quirky history, discover Great Dumow, or if it’s something grander you’re after, try Colchester Castle.
The coast is terrific, with something for everyone: charming Frinton, lively Southend, peaceful Burnham on Crouch – the list is endless.
Scattered throughout the county are many spectacular old houses and gardens – perhaps the most impressive is Audley End, with its historic stables. There are country parks and nature reserves that are well worth a visit.
Within easy reach of London for special days out, Essex has always been a popular place to seek that more relaxing way of life.
