Bank Holiday in Essex

Let Essex Tourist Guide help you find something exciting to do or somewhere interesting to visit this Bank holiday weekend.

How about a day trip to one of the many beaches that can be found up and down the Essex coastline? A day at the beach can be lots of fun, especially for families with children. If the weather is on your side why not pack a picnic in the cool box and set off early. Alternatively if you would rather travel light, when hunger sets in visit one of the many pubs and restaurants that can be found in the coastal towns and villages of Essex.

There are also plenty of hotels, guest houses, B&B's and self catering accommodation throughout our county, so maybe a relaxing weekend away would be more to your liking.

Campsites, caravan and holiday parks are also a popular choice when it comes to Bank Holiday weekends away and Essex has a huge variety so you are sure to find one that suits your needs.

Letís not forget the many tourist attractions, parklands and places of historical interest that can also make for an adventurous day out.

Whatever you decide to do, you are sure to have a great time this Bank Holiday in EssexÖ
