Mini guide to Braintree


A small traditional market town resting against a backdrop of beautiful Essex countryside, Braintree is largely unspoilt and retains a distinct rural charm, as well as a strong sense of its medieval past. Together with the neighbouring towns of Halstead and Witham, it is a destination that is most likely to appeal to visitors looking to avoid the tourist masses.

Around the town, don't expect to find an abundance of tourist attractions, but rather come to enjoy the pleasant environment and welcoming atmosphere that only a small town can offer. The surrounding Essex countryside is perhaps the town's greatest asset and is highly popular with cyclists and walkers alike.

Golf fans can play a quick round at the town's local course, while shopping addicts will be in their element taking a trip to the Freeport Braintree Outlet Shopping Village. For sports and fitness fans, there's a selection of leisure centres. Dining options include American, Indian, Mediterranean, European, seafood and British restaurants.

Nearby Castle Hedingham is home to the magnificent castle keep of the De Vere family, as well as offering charming winding lanes leading to craft centres, farmshops and quaint little teahouses; while the medieval village of Coggeshall was once home to wealthy wool merchants and is now famous for its derelict abbey and barn built by Cistercian monks.

Visitors coming to Braintree by car can take the A12 motorway from London or the M11 if travelling from northerly destinations. Regular rail services run from London's Liverpool Street station. London's Gatwick and Heathrow international airports are the most convenient for accessing Braintree.
