About Essex Explored

What is Essex Explored?

Essex Explored is a travel blog and website, inspiring readers to explore everything that Essex (England) has to offer! From fun things to see and do, places to eat at or maybe get your travel fix by discovering destinations further afield that can be reached in the ‘STN to…’ travel series!

As someone in the travel space, I feel that Essex is a bit of an underrated county. I’ve had my fair share of “where are you from?”, “Essex”, “oh TOWIE!”…there’s so much more to Essex than TOWIE! It’s home to the oldest recorded town in the UK, yes even older than London (Colchester), it has the longest coast line of any county in England and it’s right next door to London, that’s got to count for something right?!

I hope you join me as I showcase everything that Essex has to offer!
