Situated less than 20 miles from historic Colchester and Chelmsford, Braintree has a long and fascinating history – emerging from the forests of the Bronze Age as an important and flourishing market town located at the crossroad of Roman roads. Braintree still retains these excellent links to the coast, London and East Anglia via the A12, A120 and M11. With the addition of Stansted airport Braintree provides the perfect destination for a day trip or short break exploring the delights of North Essex.
