Braintree Tips

Welcome to our District........

With colourful, bustling market towns and picturesque villages set in the most beautiful rolling countryside showing North Essex at its best, look no further to get away from it all....

There is plenty to see and do throughout the district of Braintree from the designer shopping village to the medieval barns of the Knights Templar, jousting knights at a Norman Keep to steam railways, magnificent houses with stunning gardens and listed windmills. Do not miss the museums and heritage centres which give you a picture of an area steeped in history from Bronze Age and Roman settlements to the industrial successes within the wool, silk, lace and weaving trades.

Take a drive in the country through idyllic villages and beautiful scenery, stop for a hearty lunch at a traditional pub and sample the local ales or for the more active follow one of our many delightful trails whether you like to tramp, stroll or cycle.

Approximately 50 miles from London and with excellent links to the coast and East Anglia via A120, A12, M11 and direct rail, and with the addition of Stansted airport 16 miles away, our district is the perfect location for a short break or day trip away from hectic lifestyles.
