Like many other British seaside towns, Clacton-on-Sea fell into decline following the rise of budget airlines and packaged holidays to sunny destinations on the continent.
The town has recently undergone somewhat of an image overhaul owing to a £36m protection fund which has preserved coastal homes and even led to the creation of new beaches.
Renewed economic prospects have seen heavy investment into the town’s retail offering. The Clacton Factory Outlet is particularly popular offering savings of up to 60% off high street prices.
Besides the miles of sandy beaches, Clacton has some beautifully tended gardens and parks where you can watch street entertainers and bands preform. Connections to and from Clacton are excellent and well placed for commuters.

A renaissance of the seafront is underway in the form of a £36 million-pound coastal defence project from Clacton Pier to Holland Haven.
