Essex Travel Guide: 709 reviews and 1,389 photos
My adopted home for 30 years. Like myself and my family, a lot of people from East London have moved out to Essex in the last 50 years. It is a generally flat county (apart from where I go cycling) and suffers from a bad reputation created by the press. Does Essex deserve the reputation it has? I guess certain areas do. However, the small country villages that can be found throughout the county, and certain stretches of coastline, are really quite pretty. Transport links into London are generally quite good so people living here have the option to work in London but live outside the big City.
- Pros:Good access to both London and somer nice countryside
- Cons:A negative image, justified in some areas
- In a nutshell:There are far, far worse places to live in the UK
This web site attempts to promote everything that is good about Essex - countryside, culture, food, etc. more travel advice
