Essex is a treasured compilation of opposites that packs a complete wallop for your senses. From the glittering high jinks of the Sugar Hut to the Zen-like serenity of the Blackwater salt marshes, there's something for everyone. From the dynamic bustle of Chelmsford, the UK's newest city, to the historical magnificence of Colchester, dubbed "Britain's First City," It's difficult to fathom such variety in one location. Essex, which borders London, is well supplied by train and road, and it has two international airports and two globally connected ports. So there's no reason not to visit Southend and stroll down the world's longest pleasure pier.


Essex has a population of about 1.5 million people, making it the second most populated county in England. Because of the county's size, location, and terrain, the places where people dwell are extremely diverse. The border with London is rather heavily populated, and the South Essex Thames Gateway is a significant economic boom area. This region of the county is significantly different from the massive rural areas of mid and north Essex — rolling farmland covers about 75 percent of the county's land area.

Essex boasts a plethora of transportation links including public transportation alternatives. They have a vast network of Public Rights of Way ready to help you explore this wonderful county. 

Depending on the length of your journey, walking or cycling may be a better option than driving. It benefits the environment by removing cars from the road while also being beneficial to your own health and well-being. Shorter routes are often faster by foot or bike, especially during peak hours. Traveling via bus or park and ride may be preferable over longer distances. A full bus may remove up to 40 cars off the road while using up far less fuel than a single car.


A trip to Essex offers far more variety than you may think. Do you want to experience the high-energy thrills of a theme park or rodeo rafting? Alternatively, you may prefer things to be a little wilder. With such a diverse range of settings, you can meet creatures ranging from farmyard favourites to rhinoceros at Colchester Zoo to exotic sea specimens at Sea Life Adventure in Southend. And watch the awe on your kids' faces as they get up and personal with wildlife at it's nature reserves.

With so many beautiful vistas and places, it's no surprise that Essex is one of the fastest growing areas for hosting a huge event in luxury. What about a magnificent manor house to make your wedding day even more memorable? Or how about a mansion surrounded by beautiful grounds for the ideal team event? Or how about a modern sea-front retreat for a one-of-a-kind gathering space?

Come to a natural hotspot of outdoor experiences if you wish to get active. You can begin at a slow speed. Because the terrain is rather flat, it is especially enjoyable to walk or cycle along the numerous attractive coastline pathways, or to ramble through the countryside via old railway lines or rural footpaths.
