Things to do in Essex

Fans of TOWIE may not believe it, but despite being very close to London, more than 70% of Essex is made up of rolling countryside. In fact it’s home to nine different country parks, from beaches of Cudmore Grove to the woodland and deer of Weald Country Park. You could spend years exploring the gardens, lakes and historic sites and barely scratch the surface.

Essex has one of the driest climates in Britain and 350 miles of coastline, making it even more perfect for retirement living. Its seaside towns mix cliff-top views and pathways, with traditional fairgrounds and bucket-and-spade beaches, so you’ll be popular with the grandchildren too.

It also has an exciting arts scene, with a wealth of museums, cinemas, and theatres – try Brentwood’s community theatre or Cliffs Pavilion and Palace Theatre in Southend.
