About Essex

The County of Essex is located in the South-East of England. Being a Coastal County Essex has much to offer, such as the seaside Town of Southend-on-Sea a popular holiday destination which boasts the longest pleasure pier in the world. Other nearby attractions include Southchurch Hall a museum housed in a half-timbered medieval manor house, which dates back to the early 14th century or alternatively why not go and see a White Tiger eye to eye in White Tiger Valley at Colchester Zoo.
