Set in south-east England the county of Essex is the historical county bordered by the counties of Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and Kent. The name Essex originates from the Anglo – Saxon word Ēastseaxe meaning East Saxons. The county is home to delightful medieval villages, unending countryside vistas and, calming seaside resorts and that undoubtedly inspired famed painter John Constable. As you travel from the north towards the east of the county, you’ll find the countryside gains more character while the towns seem to carry distinctive personalities. The picturesque village of Colchester once served as a Roman municipality, and the county holds a wealth of Romano-British sites in locations like Rivenhall and Chesterford. Today, Colchester alongside Southend-on-Sea proves to be popular seaside resorts. The sleepy fishing village of Old Leigh or “The Old Town” is another star seaside resort that, despite its small size, offers a number of historical attractions, craft shops and pubs!
