The South East England region

North Essex has many things to offer for all ages, Harwich is the gateway to Europe with ferries and cruise ships daily makes a great place to start or finish a holiday. The region boasts many attractions with the Blue flag Dovercourt beach just footsteps away and the famous foot ferry that links you to Shotley, Felixstowe and Harwich harbour where the River Stour meets the River Orwell and seaward to the North Sea. Close to Constable country of Dedham which is always worth a day out. There is always Colchester the oldest recorded town in England with its historical garrisons, Castles and churches with its now cosmopolitan style of shopping, dining and nightlife influenced by its international university.

There is plenty of Victorian seaside towns to explore like Clacton, Frinton, Walton on the Naze, not forgetting Holland on sea, Jaywick sands, St Osyths that all sit on the coast. Further afield just across the river is the vibrant Ipswich that sits on the Essex - Suffolk border with its wealth of attractions and also full of history. Then you could jump on the train to London to places like the Tate gallery and see how he saw north Essex in his time. North Essex is definitely the forgotten treasury of England a place that time has nearly forgot but you will not forget the time you spend there.


Harwich and Dovercourt has always been a holiday destination, probably more since Victorian times and especially in the fifties and sixties with the original Hi de HI Warners holiday camp. There is always something to see or do, from visiting one of the historic sites of Harwich like The Redoubt Fort, Halfpenny Pier, and Maritime museum Lifeboat museum all open 10am - 5pm daily from May to the end of August in the good weather there are tour guides from the tourist centre on the Halfpenny Pier. From July 1st to 10th the "Harwich Trafalgar Festival of the Arts" at various venues, not to be missed is the Sea Festival on the 31st July and not forgetting the Blue Flag beaches of Dovercourt with its sandy beaches and great sea views.
