Full day: A full day excursion to the seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, on Essex’s Sunshine Coast. This bustling resort offers plenty of seaside charm, seaside walks, a busy pier and a compact town centre.
Full day: A day of revealing secrets in the heart of Essex today. First to Tiptree to visit the famous Tiptree Jam Museum, where visitors can see how village life used to be alongside how the art of preserve-making has evolved over time. In contrast this afternoon we enter the era of the Cold War as we head underground at the Kelvedon Hatch secret nuclear bunker, designed to house up to 600 personnel in time of nuclear attack. Explore the living, working and governmental environments below ground, ready to plan and organise the aftermath of an attack and the secret world that was being prepared deep in the Essex countryside.
Free Day to Explore: On this holiday you have a free day to enjoy Southend at your own pace and enjoy all the fun of this traditional English seaside resort. Take a stroll along the famously long pier (or take the pier train as it’s over a mile long!), discover the expansive Cliff Gardens, ancient Prittlewell Priory or simply sit back and enjoy the sea air.
