Hotels in Clacton
Set in the Tendring Peninsula in north east Essex, Clacton is a typically Victorian town that's been popular with tourists since the 1950's, and there's even evidence to suggest that the Romans also used Clacton as a resort centuries ago.
Today, the town is characterised by pretty gardens facing the seafront, picturesque coastline, and a sandy beach, and the best time to visit is definitely around the Clacton Carnival and Clacton Airshow in the summer months.
Places to visit
The focal point of the town is undoubtedly Clacton Pier. Here, you can indulge in a leisurely snack or a drink in one of the cafés as you watch the world go by, have fun in the Seaquarium, or even pop in to the ten pin bowling alley.
If you'd like a little bit of culture, check to see what's on at the local West Cliff or The Princes Theatres, or take a stroll to see St. John's Church, by far the oldest building in the town dating right back to the 11th century in some places, with 14th and 15th century additions.
There are lots of lovely little shops to explore in Clacton too. For a serious shopping spree, you can pop to the high street stores in the town centre, or go across to the Clacton Factory Outlet to see if you can bag a bargain.
