Essex boasts a fresh metropolitan-meets-rural spirit, which makes it perfect for those wanting the best of both. You’re within touching distance of the capital city, and yet places like Colchester, Chelmsford and Epping each manage to maintain a distinctly countryside feel. Delve into the outdoor lifestyle with a trip to Epping Forest, or to one of Epping’s many golf courses, even take a hike around Copped Hall gardens. In Colchester, a thriving University town, check out the dozens of quaint, independent cafes and get yourself a bag of English toffees from the vintage sweet shops. In Chelmsford, Essex’s only city, go adventurous with the Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park and Tropical Wings Zoo, or simply indulge in some retail therapy at High Chelmer, Chelmsford’s largest shopping centre. Whichever place you choose to lay your head, rest assured Essex will have a great day waiting for you come morning.
