Some locations say they are bustling and vibrant, yet calm and relaxed when you want it to be, and you can easily get from A to B. Visit Essex and you’ll quickly discover that this is one county that offers you this and more - especially when it has numerous towns and villages packed full of shops, attractions and places to eat, seaside resorts, and some of the country’s most beautiful countryside.
Let’s start with the transport links. There’s superb train connections, there’s the M11 and M25, and a network of A roads criss-crossing the county. So, where do you want to go? Shoppers have Chelmsford, Brentwood and Grays (for Lakeside Shopping Centre). Open green spaces are in abundance, including Thorndon Country Park, Hylands Park and Epping Forest. Plus, much-loved Clacton and Southend-on-Sea offer family fun beside the seaside.
You can see then why so many people search here for new homes. Essex has, and always will be, popular with homebuyers. The question is, will you now be one of them?
