From grand stately homes to forts built by Henry VIII, a day out in Essex is an adventure for all the family this season. Travel back to the 1880s at Audley End House and Gardens, or head over to Tilbury Fort and discover how London has been defended through the ages.
We have now switched to our winter opening hours, meaning that while many properties are open at weekends and are running events for all, there may be restricted access during the week. Please check opening times before travelling.
