Essex is a county steeped in history. Whether you want to explore the medieval village of Castle Hedingham or discover Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town. Essex is certainly not a county lacking in historical culture, much of which can be experienced with dog in-tow. Essex is also home to 17 nature reserves ranging from woodland to salt marshes and even Hanningfield Resevoir. Whereas in terms of man-made attractions the most notable dog friendly one is Southend-on-Sea, boasting one of the longest piers in the world.

From the beautiful and picturesque landscape which proved to be the inspiration for much of Constable’s artwork, to over 350 miles of coastline, Essex is a stunning county sure to hold many delights for both humans and animals alike.
