    Top 5 travel tips in Essex

    1. Visit the wonderful animals of Colchester Zoo

    Essex’s zoo in Colchester gives you an opportunity to see some of the world’s most spectacular animals. Enjoy the ‘become a keeper for a day’ experience and hand feed an elephant or giraffe!

    2. Stroll through Beth Chatto’s Gardens

    In 1960 Beth Chatto took an overgrown wasteland and replanted it with plants which would thrive and grow in each of the multiple conditions of the gardens. Using a ‘right plant, right place’ philosophy, Beth transformed this wasted space into a delightful country garden that is a wonderful visitor attraction.

    3. Have a beach day in Clacton on Sea

    Clacton’s wonderful seafront offers fun and entertainment for all the family. Don’t miss the Clacton Pier with wonderful sea views, ten pin bowling and of course penny arcades!

    The word ‘gant’ is unique to Braintree, and means ‘passageway’, coming from the Flemish word ‘gang’ (corridor). That we do know, but why one of them is called, ‘Pig’s Head in the Pottage Pot Gant’ is less obvious!
