holiday and travel guide to the UK

Walton-on-the-Naze, just north of Frinton on the tip of the Naze, and just slightly commercialised. Became popular for bathing in the 19th century and despite a downturn after the Second World War has started to re-invent itself as one of the quieter seaside resorts with small shops and unspoilt countryside and beaches.

Famous for having the third-longest pier in Britain.

Walk north to the nature reserve and views over towards Suffolk, see the boats going in and out of Harwich and Felixstowe. Nearby cliffs are famous for their fossils.
