Things to do in Essex
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
When retiring in Essex, you’ll be sure to make use of the expansive coastline; with over 350 miles of coastline (which makes it the longest coastline in the country!), you’ll see a county with a surprisingly wild beauty, that is rich in wildlife and sprinkled with lots of hidden historical and cultural gems.
The history of the county of Essex has been shaped by a huge variety of different cultures, from the ancient Romans, to the Vikings, which leaves Essex with several reminders of the past and a unique atmosphere that is great fun to explore. From ancient town walls and temple remains, to the magnificent Norman Keep at Hedingham Castle.
A retirement in Essex serves as the perfect rural escape, with plenty to see and do. Amongst the miles and miles of rich green farmland you’ll find dozens of Britain’s finest and oldest vineyards, quiet villages and lots of adventurous walking opportunities through the deepest thickets of the county.
As well as the coastal amenities and rural countryside gems, Essex has a variety of different activities, events and more that you can enjoy throughout the year for a more active retirement. From Colchester Zoo and Colchester Castle Museum, to beautiful Essex gardens and modern art galleries and exhibitions, there’s always lots for you to do.
