When people first think of Essex, the now world famous TV show “The Only Way Is Essex” usually springs to mind but while we do indeed love this little Essex gem, there’s so much more on offer and now we’re looking toward a week of school free fun, we thought we’d round up all of the things you can do with the family this coming week. Whether you’re Essex residents yourselves or special guests here at the Marygreen Manor, here’s our ultimate guide to family days out in Essex to guarantee fun, laughter and lots of wonderful, unforgettable memories.

First and foremost we have the brand new “The Great British Pet and Country Show” in the great Hylands Park, Chelmsford. This will begin tomorrow and continue all the way through to Bank Holiday Monday too. From dog shows to horse training to slippery snakes and other such scaly friends, the Great British Pet Show is guaranteed to keep the kids entertained. There’ll also be a lot of shopping there which means plenty of opportunity to treat your furry friends too. Kids go free too, when you book online now.

If pets aren’t your thing however, you’ve still got ample opportunity to enjoy the Essex countryside in the form of Audley End House. This is one of England’s grandest stately homes, complete with restored historic stables and Victorian groom. Here your children can enjoy the history of such a place in the form of stories that come to life in places like the nursery suites. You’ll also get the chance to explore the coal gallery with so many different smells and sounds of the 19th century. This is a particularly great visit for those wanting to educate their children during the school holidays too.

If you’re looking for something fun and enjoyable, while still managing to keep the kids clean then why not check out some of the worlds most beautiful animals in the safe, and might we add clean, environment of Colchester Zoo? Here you and the family will get to enjoy the sights and sounds of some of the most majestic creatures known to man from the Giraffe to Elephants, Lions to Tigers and everything else in between. The gorillas will amaze you with their unbelievable strength while the kids are guaranteed to gasp as just how agile the seals can be as you walk through the amazing tunnel underneath their pool.

If birds are more your thing, then you might want to check out Tropical Wings Zoo. This place is great for introducing children to the wonderful world of winged creatures. They even have a few special residents too including porcupines and meerkats. Better yet, you can even enjoy the free-flying butterflies all year round.

Now while days like this are indeed fun for the vast majority, we know not every family is about the great outdoors and for you guys we’ve got a rather special suggestion. How does fine dining, a beautiful and exquisite restaurant as well as an award winning wine list sound? Well believe it or not, you could actually enjoy all of that right here in the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant. Our head chef has created one of the finest menus in Essex and we’re simply ready and waiting for you to explore and enjoy. What’s more, you could also take advantage of the luxury accommodation available allowing you to enjoy some beautiful food and simply walk up to your room. What could be better than that?

For more information on what we have available here at Marygreen, or perhaps to book a family lunch for all to enjoy, simply contact us today on 01277 225 252.
