Southend is the largest resort in Essex and for many a favourite seaside resort. It has a famous pier, the longest in the world, with a railway service along to the pier head over a mile out to sea. A large lift offers access to the seafront from the town’s shopping centre and theatres.
Opened in early 2010, the Park Inn Palace, Southend on-Sea will offer guests a stylish and exciting base from which to explore this beautiful seaside resort in the East of England. Located along Southend’s Western Esplanade, overlooking the mouth of the River Thames in the heart of the city’s tourist area, this hotel provides excellent modern amenities and welcomes both leisure and business travellers. The hotel is situated in the heart of Southend-on-Sea’s stylish tourist area and overlooks the mouth of the Thames.
There is also a lift to all floors.
Day One / Colchester and Clacton on Sea – Today we visit Britain’s oldest town which grew from a Roman fortress and still has long stretches of Roman fortifications as well as a splendid Norman keep (the largest in Europe) and interesting sites from the Civil War. We then continue on to Clacton, the leading resort on the Essex Sunshine Coast.
Day Two / Constable Country – We travel to the picturesque Stour Valley and Dedham Vale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty made famous by the paintings of John Constable. We visit the National Trust owned Bridge Cottage in Flatford which houses an exhibition about Constable before enjoying a guided walk of a few of the locations of the artist’s most famous and much loved paintings. We also visit the charming villages of Dedham and East Bergholt, Constable’s birthplace.
