Welcome to Visit Essex for Group Travel

What is a Group Travel Organiser? It’s someone who organises the social outings (either day trips or short breaks and holidays) for their Club, Group, Association or just a group of friends or family on a regular basis. It may also be a Tour or Coach Operator.

If you haven’t visited Essex before then now’s the time to do so – with a brand new website full of information readily at your fingertips, we hope you will be inspired to visit our wonderful “county of hidden treasures”.

Those who havn’t been before are sure to be surprised by our rural landscape (71%) and diverse coastline - Essex Discovery Coast – the longest of any UK county at 350 miles. We also have historic market towns and villages, including Colchester Britain’s oldest recorded town and Finchingfield, often referred to as “the most beautiful village in the UK”.

We have some fantastic visitor attractions, outstanding accommodation, great pubs and restaurants to whet your appetite too, plus a large variety of events to suit all ages and tastes. Our themed itineraries will help you to explore, experience and enjoy Essex.

If you’ve been before and think you know Essex inside out, then you can challenge us to find something you haven’t heard about or seen before! Contact us.

Essex is easily accessible for coach travel with road connections via the M25 and M11, and the only county in the UK with four international gateways – London Stansted Airport, London Southend Airport, London Cruise Terminal & Harwich International Port, and we are literally on London’s doorstep!

So what are you waiting for? Explore, experience and enjoy Essex for Groups!
