With its unique placement within the London commuter belt, the home county of Essex provides many of the benefits of living in the capital without London prices.
Essex is home to several speciality museums, including Hollytrees and Chelmsford Museum; these stand proudly alongside theatres, such as the historic Westcliff, live music venues big and small and some truly breath-taking architectural wonders from across the ages. This is all without even mentioning the parks – both amusement and natural – the zoo, restaurants, clubs, bars and, of course, the many seaside towns.
For sports fans looking for a local game to watch or a team to support, the county has two football teams, a speedway team, an ice hockey team, a cricket club, volleyball club and more. You can even spend a day at the races thanks to the county’s excellent racing venue: Chelmsford City Races. Essex’s love affair with sports has produced world-class athletes across several sporting disciplines. And it shows no sign of letting up anytime soon.
